Question

Running a python script through screen but it involves a virtual environment.

I’m very very new to this. I have never used ubuntu before yesterday. I purchased a droplet through digital ocean and I setup the server. I installed python and all of the needed libraries for the script (it’s a simple twitter bot). I i created all the files inside a virtual environment… I think… I followed this guide. It was very helpful. So, I created these files, two of them. One .txt and one was .py . the Python file would take sentences from the txt file and send them to twitter basically. I am trying to run this script 24/7. I googled around and came across this thread . I was following what the user Mohensen stated, I was testing out my directory and things but I cant seem to access my python file. the path I was testing was: environments/my_env/Quotes.py I tried this and it stated “No such file or directory.” I tested it by adding /bin and /activate (both of them were required to access the files when i created them, I’m not sure why, but I had to type them) and it still did not work.

Solved! I saved the files inside of the envrionments directory not the bin directory!
