Deploying Wagtail

On your server

Wagtail is straightforward to deploy on modern Linux-based distributions, but see the section on performance for the non-Python services we recommend.

Our current preferences are for Nginx, Gunicorn and supervisor on Debian, but Wagtail should run with any of the combinations detailed in Django’s deployment documentation.

On PythonAnywhere

PythonAnywhere is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) focused on Python hosting and development. It allows developers to quickly develop, host, and scale applications in a cloud environment. Starting with a free plan they also provide MySQL and PostgreSQL databases as well as very flexible and affordable paid plans, so there’s all you need to host a Wagtail site. To get quickly up and running you may use the wagtail-pythonanywhere-quickstart.

On other PAASs and IAASs

We know of Wagtail sites running on Heroku, Digital Ocean and elsewhere. If you have successfully installed Wagtail on your platform or infrastructure, please contribute your notes to this documentation!
