Django with FastCGI


Note: Django uses an SQLite database by default. Using another database software would require a custom configuration that is not supported.

While it is possible to install Django on HostGator servers, it is not a supported application. While HostGator will not assist with installation or support of Django, we may assist with the following:

  • Providing the environment to run Django in
  • Providing developers with the error logs

It is recommended that you have a developer available to assist you with any issues that may arise while installing or using this software. Users on Shared and Reseller servers will need to use the steps listed at the link below to set up Django.

For users on VPS and Dedicated Servers, we recommend following the Django Quick Install Guide steps to complete an installation on the server.

Python Versions

Using the chart below, you can determine which version of Django you can use depending on which Python version is installed on the server.

Python VersionDjango Verison
2.7, 3.4, 3.5, 3.61.11
3.4, 3.5, 3.62.0
3.5, 3.6, 3.72.1, 2.2
Note: Shared and Reseller servers can only support Django 1.11 due to the Python 3.x version being 3.2.3.
