There were few changes in application structure on Openshift after its last release ( Because of this I had some troubles with creating new Django application. Here I will describe steps for creating Django 1.7 application using Python 2.7 cartridge on Openshift.

1. Create application

There are two options for creating application on Openshift:

  • using command line tools 
  • using GUI 

Both of these are described here

2. Clone application to development machine

Create empty Git repository on your machine:

mkdir repo_dir && cd repo_dir

git init

Open your application and copy its SSH path (via GUI or by command rhc domain show). It should be like 


Clone it to your git repo:

git clone ssh://

You should see the following files structure:

    |-- requirements.txt

3. Create Django project

a) Install Django

pip install Django==1.7

b) Create your Django project

I use project template for this purpose In this case my command is startproject --template= --extension=py,js,css,html,txt my_project

Or empty default project can be created: startproject my_project

c) Rearange project directories

If project was created from template, its root directory should be moved on one level up.

d) Final project structure

Finally there should the following project's structure:

    |-- my_project
        └-- my_project
            |-- (or settings/ settings/ etc)
    |-- requirements.txt
    |-- requirements/production.txt etc. (optional)

4. Configure file

The next step is to put this content into repo_dir/

In my case it has the following code:

import os
from os.path import abspath, dirname
from sys import path

SITE_ROOT = dirname(dirname(abspath(__file__)))
path.append(os.path.join(os.environ['OPENSHIFT_REPO_DIR'], 'my_project'))

os.environ.setdefault("DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE", "my_project.settings.production")

from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application
application = get_wsgi_application()

There should be proper path to your DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE.

5. Add requirements

Put your requirements in requirements.txt file, e.g.:

# requirements.txt

6. Push commit to Openshift

Do commands:

git add *

git commit -m "First commit"

git push origin master


Enjoy your web application) Don't forget to add your web-app site address to ALLOWED_HOSTS in production settings. If you have questions just leave a comment. I'll be happy to help you.
