restored version 5


  • TurboGearsOnSharedHostingAccount

    v6 v7  
     1The HOWTO describes how to install TurboGears app on a shared hosting account, whereas Apache forwards HTTP requests to the !CherryPy server and installation files is sandboxed to user's homedir (vs. usual system-wide setup). 
     3''it's a bit lengthy, probably need to be trimmed'' 
     5== !CherryPy configuration == 
     7To configure Apache/Cherrypy read [http://www.cherrypy.org/wiki/BehindApache this]. You'll need a port assigned to you by hoster to forward requests to. 
     9== Prepare non-root python environment == 
     11This is easy with Ian Bicking's script: 
    2 #!html 
    3 <br> 
    4 <div style="display:block; padding: 4px; border: 2px solid red; color: #C00; font-weight:bold;"> 
    5 Note: this entry was moved to TurboGears newsdoc (TurboGearsOnSharedHostingAccount.html) 
    6 </div> 
    7 <br> 
     14$ wget http://svn.colorstudy.com/home/ianb/non_root_python.py 
     15$ python2.4 non_root_python.py 
     18This copies system Python2.4 files to your ~/bin, ~/lib/python2.4 and ~/include directories. The "non-root" python executable will reside in ~/bin. 
     20== Install TurboGears itself == 
     23$ svn co http://www.turbogears.org/svn/turbogears/branches/1.0 turbogears 
     24$ cd turbogears 
     25$ ~/bin/python setup.py install 
     28Note that I also had to install Kid and Cheetah from SVN; this is currently required for TG to operate properly. To verify the install try to run ~/bin/tg-admin command. 
     30== Install Turbogears application == 
     32Next step is to install your application. If you're using an egg (and I think there is no valid reason you shouldn't) it's simply a matter of running `~/bin/easy_install -s ~/bin TheApp-1.0.egg`. Btw, to build an egg just run `setup.py bdist_egg` from within your development copy. 
     34== Configure the application == 
     36This is a matter of writing proper prod.cfg and putting it to correct place. 
     38The settings to pay attention to are: `sqlobject.dburi`, server.socket_port and server.log_file. In a shared hosting setup, the socket_port and log directory to use are given by the hoster so just make sure you've specified them correctly. 
     40When running proxied behind Apache you will also need to add the following to the setup: 
     44base_url_filter.on = True 
     45base_url_filter.use_x_forward_host = True 
     48This ensures !CherryPy will use "X-Forwarded-Host" header set by Apache to figure out publicly-visible address of the application.
