I originally wrote this FAQ for my couchsurfers. I think it's useful for people who live in Vienna long term too. Things like the big Turkish market at Yppengasse are super useful for everyone.
I finished building the first version of this site a couple of weeks back. But, I hadn't a mote of a clue how to deploy a site. So I went a-googlin'. I turned up this article: "How To Set Up Django with Postgres, Nginx, and Gunicorn on Ubuntu 16.04". It looked encouragingly complete. But you know how the story goes. It doesn't simply go. It stumbles all over the place, falls off a few cliffs, drowns, and then you do it again. And again, and again, and again ad infinitum ad naseam.
I deployed this site today. Something of a milestone. I dropped Wagtail and Puput, and went with Mezzanine because, as I've found out, the larger and more stable a community, the more secure and fully featured the package. Security was a big concern for me, and I'm really glad Mezzanine deals with it so decently.
This is a brief one, I hope.
I've begun thinking about how to deploy my app. It would have been easy as a one-pager, but my app has a PostgreSQL database, and it is a social networking site, which means I should prepare for lots and lots of users (assuming people pick it up at all).
