Host your Django Website In Ubuntu Server With Ngnix and Uwsgi.

Host your Django Website In Ubuntu Server With Ngnix and Uwsgi.


What is Ngnix ?

     Nginx (pronounced engine-x) is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server and reverse proxy, as well as an IMAP/POP3 proxy server. Igor Sysoev started development of Nginx in 2002, with the first public release in 2004. Nginx now hosts nearly 12.18% (22.2M) of active sites across all domains. Nginx is known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption.

What is Uwsgi ?

      The uWSGI project aims at developing a full stack for building hosting services.applicaton servers( for various programing languages and protocols),proxies , process managers and monitors are all implemented using a common api and common configuration style.

Working Diagram for Ngnix, uWSGI with Python frameworks.


First install required applications:

sudo apt-get install nginx uwsgi uwsgi-plugin-python python-virtualenv, Here we are installing all the packages in single command ( ngnix , uwsgi and uwsgi packages and virtual env )
I think you all have ready Django project. Now iam going to explain about the configuration for Hosting our django project with Ubuntu Server.

Versions of packages that will be used:
  • Nginx 
  • Uwsgi
  • Virtualenv
  • Django 1.7.7
Step 1 :  Activate your virtual env and run your django project ,

Example : 

         cd `/myprojects/

         virtualenv  global
         source gobal/bin/activate
          pip install django 
 startprojeect logiconline

Step 2 : Nginx configuration.

        Configuration files are stored in /etc/ngnix/site-available. Go to this Directory and create new file for our project logiconline.

cd /etc/nginx/site-available 
sudo subl
 ( This command will create  a file for project , subl( Sublime text editor )

Example configuration :

server {
    listen  80;
    access_log /var/log/nginx/logiconline.in_access.log;
    error_log /var/log/nginx/logiconline.in_error.log;

    location / { 
        uwsgi_pass  unix:///tmp/;
        include     uwsgi_params;

    location /media/  {
         alias /home/myprojects/logiconline/media/;

    location  /static/ {
        alias /home/myprojects/logiconline/static/;


We must create symlink to enable this.

cd /etc/ngnix/sites-enabled 
ln -s ../sites-available/

Uwsgi Configurat.ion
Like with Nginx.. configuration files are stored in /etc/uwsgi/apps-available. Go to this directory and create a new file.
cd /etc/uwsgi/apps-available 
sudo subl
Example : Uwsgi File 
vhost = true
plugins = python
socket = /tmp/
master = true
enable-threads = true
processes = 2
wsgi-file = /home/myprojects/logiconline/logiconline/
virtualenv = /home/global
chdir = /home/myprojects/logiconline
touch-reload = /home/myprojects/logiconline/reload
Enable this.
cd /etc/uwgi/apps-enabled/
ln -s ../apps-available/
Step 3 : That's all. Now, run this services.
sudo service nginx start
sudo service uwsgi start
This is very basic configuration for Hosting your project in Ubuntu server.Change it according to your need , any Querys Please feel free to contact me : and 9746272610
