Copy lswsgi to fcgi-bin

cp lswsgi /usr/local/lsws/fcgi-bin/

if existing overwrite

cp: overwrite ‘/usr/local/lsws/fcgi-bin/lswsgi’? y

Step 2 : Create site:

Login to your CyberPanel Control Panel.




Create website, you can get a new hosting account with Openlitespeed here https://www.hostingbyalitech.com

Fill out :

Site package : default (or any other if you have)

Site owner : yourusername

Domain name : souqagora.tk (here I am using this site this will be referred throughout the tutorial.

E-mail: your e-mail

Select php : 7.3 (this will not affect but normally I choose 7.3 or as required)

and check all additional features i.e. SSL, DKIM Support, open_basedir protection, Create Mail Domain

Step 3: Create Virtual Environment

Move to your site root dir:

cd /home/souqagora.tk/public_html

Create virtual environment:

python3 -m virtualenv /home/souqagora.tk/public_html

Output :

Using base prefix '/usr'
  No LICENSE.txt / LICENSE found in source
New python executable in /home/souqagora.tk/public_html/bin/python3
Also creating executable in /home/souqagora.tk/public_html/bin/python
Installing setuptools, pip, wheel...
done.

Activate virtual environment:

source /home/souqagora.tk/public_html

check python directory

which python

It should reflect the directory of your virtual environment:

/home/souqagora.tk/public_html/bin/python

Step 4: Install Django

pip install django

Output:

Collecting django
  Using cached Django-3.1.6-py3-none-any.whl (7.8 MB)
Collecting sqlparse>=0.2.2
  Using cached sqlparse-0.4.1-py3-none-any.whl (42 kB)
Collecting pytz
  Using cached pytz-2021.1-py2.py3-none-any.whl (510 kB)
Collecting asgiref=3.2.10
  Using cached asgiref-3.3.1-py3-none-any.whl (19 kB)
Installing collected packages: sqlparse, pytz, asgiref, django
Successfully installed asgiref-3.3.1 django-3.1.6 pytz-2021.1 sqlparse-0.4.1

Step 5: Create Django Project

python3 -m django startproject souq

Note: My project name is souq replace as required.

Step 6: Modify Django settings

cd souq
cd souq
nano settings.py

Change below 

ALLOWED_HOSTS = []

So that it should reflect as:

ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['*']

and add below at the end of the file settings.py

STATIC_ROOT = '/home/souqagora.tk/public_html/souq/public/static'

mentioning /public/static is required

cd..

make sure you are in the below folder:

/home/souqagora.tk/public_html/souq/

Use this command to make sure:

pwd

create directory

mkdir -p public/static

Collect static files:

python manage.py collectstatic

Make database migration

python manage.py migrate

Output:

Operations to perform:
  Apply all migrations: admin, auth, contenttypes, sessions
Running migrations:
  Applying contenttypes.0001_initial... OK
  Applying auth.0001_initial... OK
  Applying admin.0001_initial... OK

  Applying admin.0003_logentry_add_action_flag_choices... OK
  Applying contenttypes.0002_remove_content_type_name... OK
  Applying auth.0002_alter_permission_name_max_length... OK
  Applying auth.0003_alter_user_email_max_length... OK
  Applying auth.0004_alter_user_username_opts... OK
  Applying auth.0005_alter_user_last_login_null... OK
  Applying auth.0006_require_contenttypes_0002... OK
  Applying auth.0007_alter_validators_add_error_messages... OK
  Applying auth.0008_alter_user_username_max_length... OK
  Applying auth.0009_alter_user_last_name_max_length... OK
  Applying auth.0010_alter_group_name_max_length... OK
  Applying auth.0011_update_proxy_permissions... OK
  Applying auth.0012_alter_user_first_name_max_length... OK
  Applying sessions.0001_initial... OK

Create super user:

python manage.py createsuperuser

Output:

Username (leave blank to use 'root'): root
Email address:
Password:
Password (again):
Superuser created successfully.

Note: Here I am creating with root user because I was having difficulties creating other users at the moment. After you create first user with root you may create other users while in Django admin.

Change folder owner:

chown -R nobody:nobody /home/souqagora.tk/public_html/souq/

Step 7: Create context in OpenLiteSpeed

Login to your OpenLiteSpeed Control Panel, 7080 is the Openlitespeed Port for Control Panel:

https://hostingbyalitech.com:7080

Go to Virtual Hosts on side bar.

and open the virtual host configuration form above icon.

Click Context Tab.

Click ‘+’ sign and add new context, select App Server as shown below:

and click next.

Now fillout these details as shown:

URI * = /

Location * = /home/souqagora.tk/public_html/souq/

Binary Path = /usr/local/lsws/fcgi-bin/lswsgi

Application Type = WSGI

Startup File = souq/wsgi.py

Environment = PYTHONPATH=/home/souqagora.tk/public_html/lib/python3.6:/home/souqagora.tk/public_html/souq
LS_PYTHONBIN=/home/souqagora.tk/public_html/bin/python

Note: Make sure you have python version 3.6 otherwise check accordingly and modify above version in PYTHONPATH.

Step 8: Verify Django Installation

http://souqagora.tk/admin/

These links were of help but I had to struggle alot to reach to success which changes have been included in these guides:
