Hey all,

I am a first time user of webfaction, and this is my first crack at deploying a django application.

I went through the documentation. Changed the wsgi and httpd conf files so that they point to my project. I changed the settings to match the database that I created.

Once I did all of that, I went to apache and did a ./restart

I thought I would have had luck but when I went to my domain, it just showed the welcome page of the domain provider, let its not recognizing my django application.

Am I missing something?

Have you pointed your domain to our servers? If you did and you still get your domain registrar's page then the changes might have not been propagated yet, or there's a misconfiguration on their end.

I currently have:

ns1.theinjurybug.com - 50.56.93.59

etc

Now when I go to theinjurybug.com I get: The page isn't redirecting properly firefox error

The correct values in your domain registrar's panel should be:

ns1.webfaction.com  50.56.93.59
ns2.webfaction.com  178.79.142.142
ns3.webfaction.com  209.114.37.51
ns4.webfaction.com  173.230.141.144

Alright. I just made the changes to do custom nameservers on namecheap so looks like I will need to wait the day or whatever. It only asked for the names not the IP though?

Yeah, such changes might take up to 48 hours to propagate, although it's usually less.

Some domain registrars only need the hostname and they do any DNS lookup themselves, so that wouldn't be an issue.
