Deployment for dummies

I am completely new to Django and PostgreSQL. I was following the documentation step-by-step, and my AskBot installation runs OK on localhost.

Now I am stuck with deployment: http://askbot.org/doc/deployment.html

I completed the first two steps, with static files collections and setting up permissions. What I am going to do next? (for Apache/mod_wsgi)

Using PHP/MySQL engines such as Wordpress or phpBB, I would normally copy my folder to the server and then run the website; it would prompt me for the remaining steps to create the database and complete the installation.

Here I see that the next step is "Configure webserver", and I probably don't have these permissions from my hoster. When I access my server on FTP, I can see only my own folder. I haven't tried SSH yet, though, as I have no experience with it.

I tried just to copy my folder, but it seemingly doesn't work (I get 500 Internal Server error) - anyway, I don't see how it would, because the database was not migrated.

Any ideas what should I do next?

Updated. My questions are the following:

  • Where I can find server configurations?
  • Do I have to migrate the database manually?

Deployment attempt 1. I tried just to copy my folder, folder from localhost to my hosting server by FTP, but it seemingly doesn't work (I get 500 Internal Server error) - anyway, I don't see how it would, because the database was not migrated.

Any ideas what should I do next?

Updated.Deployment attempt 2. I connected to the server by ssh, installed askbot in a virtual environment, and completed installation steps right there, on my hosting server. It runs GNU Linux and I have a command prompt access to it.

After I started the webserver, I couldn't figure out how to access it. Apparently, no browser was installed on my hosting server. Opening the site myproject.myhosting.com didn't work either.

I decided to continue anyway and got stuck exactly at the same place: "Configure webserver". My questions are the following:

  • guess was that I needed to create a bash file with these settings and try to run it. It didn't work: I had no privileges to run the bash file.

    So my question is: - Where I can find set server configurations?
