Multiple Apps in one droplet (Django, Redmine, Git Repositories)

July 2, 2014 4k views

Hi guys,

I was thinking about Digital Ocean to host my django apps and also to configure Redmine and some Git repositories on it.

Is it possible to have all this in one droplet or do I need to configure more than one? Can I configure more than one django app and git repositories?

So far I've seen I can configure multiple domains so I'm assuming this is possible but wanted to confirm this first.

The 5$/month is for a droplet or I can have more than one for that price? I wasn't able to get this clear by reading the documentation.

Thanks for the help.

You can definitely install multiple apps on one droplet however it's recommended that you install each manually and not use a one-click image so you know exactly where everything is and make sure there aren't any conflicts. Check out our community for tutorials on installing Redmine, Gitlab, Django, and other apps: Tutorials | DigitalOcean.

And to answer your second question, you'll pay $5 per month for a single 512 MB droplet. Adding another one will cost you another $5 per month, or more if you choose a larger option.
I am currently running a 1 GB droplet for mail and one site still using Apache, and a 512 MB droplet for a couple of sites served by Nginx. The first costs me $10 per month, and the second is $5 per month, so in total, I am paying $15 per month.

Thank you both for the answers. After starting installing some stuff I've already accomplished a few things I wanted.

I'm still missing the Git Deploy but I already saw the tutorial for that. That's my next step.

Hi again guys,

Another question that's wasn't clear. Can I have 2 different Django Projects running in one droplet using nginx?

On my machine using the default server from python I have to run an instance of a server for each project I pretend to run. How does this work with nginx? If I want to deploy 2 different Django projects with different domains I need 2 droplets or is it possible to make it with only one?

What configuration do I need to apply to achieve this?

Thanks again,
