Deploying a Mezzanine site on DigitalOcean

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.

Milestone: deployed a site

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.
