Hosting Complex Web Applications on Webfaction Servers

by Martin Brochhaus

Published June 13, 2013 in Programming

At Bitmazk we build Django based web applications exclusively and so far we have hosted more than 30 client projects and internal projects on Webfaction servers.

Setting up a full web stack is a complex and tedious undertaking and learning about all the different technologies involved took us hundreds of hours.

This talk gives step by step instructions on how to setup your account using the Webfaction Control Panel, how to install a great toolbelt on your new server (zsh, tmux, vim, supervisor) and how to kickstart a new Django project.

Presented as a 3.5 hour tutorial at PyCon Singapore 2013
