Yes, you would just take the current VirtualHost that you have defined for your PHP enabled website and update the ServerName directive to use:


Then create a new virtual host for your django app:

WSGIScriptAlias / /home/username/public_html/

And you should be all set.

  • Please, please do the tutorial about config python and php project at the same droplet server because a lot of people need it.
    Right now I really want to know how to config wordpress project (php) and flask (python) project at the same droplet.

    So image that 123.456.789.22 is my droplet IP then
    when I using 123.456.789.22/wordpress –> will be wordpress website.
    and 123.456.789.22/flask –> will be flask website.
