Any one can successfully deploy a flask project?

I spent a whole day to deploy a flask project, which is bug free when I test it locally.

However, it so hard to deploy it on a server.

The debug mode just doesn't work anymore. I google a lot and tried many methods, but they don't work.

I really need some help. Actually, if I just test a simple hello word flask program, it works.

But when I upload my whole project, it keeps saying 500 internal server error. I cannot trace the bug. This really despairs me!! Anyone can help me?

I currently have a flask project I'm working on and it hasnt been deployed yet, but I did a little researching on this same topic of deploying a flask project out of curiousity a couple weeks ago. Continuing off of Sai's answer, I personally planned on using OpenShift to host my app (when its complete). There are a multiple services to try out. What service were you using when you were deploying your app?

You might wanna try Heroku as your app hosting provider. They have tutorials on how to deploy Flask applications to Heroku's Servers.
