Django with fastcgi

Note: Django uses a SQLite database by default. Using another database software would require custom configuration that is not supported.

While it is possible to install Django on HostGator servers, it is not a supported application. While HostGator will not assist with installation or support of Django, we may assist with the following:

  • Providing the environment to run Django in.
  • Providing developers with error logs.

It is recommended that you have a developer available to assist you with any issues that may arise while installing or using this software. Users on Shared and Reseller servers will need to use the steps listed at the link below to setup Django.

For users on VPS and Dedicated Servers we recommend following the steps at Django Qiuck Install Guide to complete an installtion on the server

Python Versions

Using the chart below you can determine which version of Django you can use depending on which Python version is installed on the server.

Python Version Django Verison
2.7, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 1.11
3.4, 3.5, 3.6 2.0
3.5, 3.6, 3.7 2.1, 2.2
Note: Shared and Reseller servers can only support Django 1.11 due to the Python 3.x version being 3.2.3.
