static and media file

Posted May 22, 2021 344 views

How can I serve my static and media files?

I place my static and media file on my root dir,
below is my config:

STATIC_URL = "/static/"

MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'media')
MEDIA_URL = "/media/"

STATIC_URL = '/static/'

    os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'static', 'media'),

STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'staticfiles')

Hi there,

I believe that you also need to specify the following in your Nginx server block:

    location /static/ {
        root /home/sammy/myproject;

That way the static files will be available at

You would also need to do the same for your media folder.
