Deploy | Django LiveView

You can deploy Django LiveView using any web server like reverse proxy.


I recommend using Nginx. Here is an example of how to configure. Replace with your domain and my-project with your folder name.

server {
    listen 80;

    location / {
        proxy_set_header Host $host;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $server_name;
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_redirect off;

    location /static {
        include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
        root /var/www/my-project;

    location /media {
        include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
        root /var/www/my-project;

    location = /favicon.ico { access_log off; log_not_found off; }

It is important to note that the proxy_set_header lines are necessary for the WebSocket to work. You can see more about it in Channels.
