How do i get a basic web2py server up and running on
[update - 29/05] We now have a big button on the web tab that will do all this stuff for you. Just click where it says Web2Py, fill in your admin password, and you're good to go.
Here's the old stuff for historical interest...
I'm a PythonAnywhere developer. We're not massive web2py experts (yet?) but I've managed to get web2py up and running like this:
First download and unpack web2py:
wget http://www.web2py.com/examples/static/web2py_src.zip unzip web2py_src.zip
Go to the PythonAnywhere "Web" panel and edit your
wsgi.py. Add these lines:
import os import sys path = '/home/my_username/web2py' if path not in sys.path: sys.path.append(path) from wsgihandler import application
my_username with your username.
You will also need to comment out the last two lines in wsgi.py, where we have the default hello world web.py application...
# comment out these two lines if you want to use another framework #app = web.application(urls, globals()) #application = app.wsgifunc()
Thanks to Juan Martinez for his instructions on this part, which you can view here: http://web2py.pythonanywhere.com/
then open a Bash console, and
cd into the main
web2py folder, then run
python web2py.py --port=80
enter admin password
(this will generate the
parameters_80.py config file)
then go to your Web panel on PythonAnywhere, click reload web app, and things should work!
