Question

How do I host my discord.py bot?

Hello How can I host my discord.py bot here? I have bought my 5$ droplet but don’t know how I can actually host the bot or type any code. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

I must say that the only, and accepted answer to this question is hopefully inadequate. Hosting a bot involves quite a bit more than just uploading and running a script. Who will run the script if the server is restarted or goes down? How to make a script run everytime a machine starts? In my google results, I expected an answered question to have an answer that addresses properly hosting a bot, not how to use FTP and run a script.

Hi there @FaresFilms,

What you need to do first is to install python, I would recommend following the steps from this article here on how to do that:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-python-3-and-set-up-a-programming-environment-on-an-ubuntu-18-04-server

Then you can upload your .py script to your server via SFTP.

After that, you can run the script as shown in the tutorial.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
