1) Storing Code

To Deploy Any App we would require some version control storage . In this project i have used github for the same .

The code given is pushed to Githu repository :-

Runnning Link :-

the github is open source and allows easily to update , fetch and remove code easily

2) Creating a Instance :-

Instance can be created on any cloud . For this I have used EC2 instance with ubuntu OS . and connected to aws using ssh .

3) Configuring instance

The OS is empty with only important software installed . We need to update and install required software:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
sudo reboot

now the system is configured we need to pull code from github repository .

github clone

This will clone the app from central repository to local repository .

4) Creating a requirements.txt file :

This file contains all the dependency that are needed to run the django app .

5) Creating a Dockerfile :

dockerfile contains all the instruction we want to create a container .

FROM python:3.9-slim-buster


COPY requirements.txt .

RUN pip install --no-cache-dir -r requirements.txt

COPY . .


CMD ["python", "", "runserver", ""]

This file is creating a python image and creating a code dir .

copying the requirements file in workdir . installing all requirements and copying all code from present directory to /code

Exposing 8000

and runing server .

6) Building a docker image :

docker build -t kush1231234/mynewapp .

7) Running the container :

docker run -d -p 8000:8000 kush1231234/newapp1

5 ) Pushing all changes to repository

6) Opening ports 8000 on instance to allow traffic .

this is done by going to setting -->launch wizard --> inbound rules

allow 8000

and also make sure To allow in the .
