Deploy Flask App

I have an app I created using Flask.

I want to deploy it to my hosting company's server, in the same manner as a standard website. So the world can view it :>

My host appears to have Python installed; however, I can't figure out what I need to get the script to run.

Any help would be appreciated. I didn't find anything from Treehouse on the subject.

You will need to make sure the python modules that you coded with for your app (that's all the include statements) and their dependencies are available on the server.

Perhaps your server has a way that you can install modules using pip or some such utility.

Hi Kris

Are you deploying to an apache server, if so i have a template on git hub that should help.


Check you have all the libraries installed before you use my template.

Actually what I'm looking for is this.

I want to have a script/app that is on a server (hosted) to compile and run.

The server has Python already installed, but I can't seem to figure out how to get it to compile and then run -- thus allowing a user to see and interact with the scrip.

Do I need to set up some sort of config file or something?

(keep in mind I know different servers require different things, but I'm looking for at least a starting point to research)
