When we have new code drop from development, we copy the files manually to the hosting server running in Digital Ocean droplet.

Then we run these two commands

  1. makemigrations
  2. migrate

in the python virtual environment.

Both the commands completed find but, we are not able to use the new migration in our web site. We did not touch the database (postgres) side hoping that models.py would take care of migrations on the database side.

Please advise what would be missing from my side?

P.S. Out Django project was setup as per this document.

hi @bengaltiger,

I would reach out to the author who wrote the guide @jellingwood.

Just exit virtual environment:

$ deactivate

Then restart gunicorn:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart gunicorn

After you should be able to see the change in ip/admin.
