Setting Up Python and Django on Ubuntu 22.04: A Comprehensive Guide for ServerStadium VMs
This guide provides detailed instructions on installing Python and setting up Django on Ubuntu 22.04. This setup is suitable for deploying Django applications on a ServerStadium VM instance.
Step 1: Update and Upgrade Ubuntu Packages
First, connect to your ServerStadium VM via SSH. Once connected, update and upgrade your Ubuntu packages:
sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade
Step 2: Install Python
Ubuntu 22.04 typically comes with Python pre-installed. Verify the installation and check the version:
If Python is not installed or you need a different version, you can install it using:
sudo apt install python3
Step 3: Install pip (Python Package Installer)
Install pip, the Python package manager, which you will use to install Django:
sudo apt install python3-pip
Step 4: Install Django
With pip installed, you can now install Django:

Verify the installation by checking the Django version:
Step 5: Create Your Django Project
Create a directory for your Django project and navigate into it:
mkdir mydjangoapp && cd mydjangoapp
Start a new Django project:
django-admin startproject myproject .
This command creates a new Django project named
myproject in your current directory.
Step 6: Configure the Django Application
Edit the settings of your Django project to configure allowed hosts, database settings, and more. Open the settings file:
ALLOWED_HOSTS array, add your server’s IP address or domain name.
Step 7: Start the Django Development Server
Run the Django development server to see if everything is set up correctly:
python3 manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000
Open your web browser and visit
http://your_server_ip:8000. You should see the Django welcome page.
