I have a django project running with the dev server, and would like to try run it in a production environment.

I wanted to try Cherokee for a change, so I installed it. We don't have a domain name yet, so I set up a DynDNS looking like It works fine, I can see the Cherokee welcome page (so red, I first believed I got an error :-p).

I ran the wizard to create a new virtual server for Django.

No everything is setup, but I have nothing. Still the default Cherokee welcome page.

What should I do now if I want to go to "" and see my website? What should I do now if I next want to make it available only at ""?

Important fact, I use virtual_env, so your can call Python directly, you have to activate it first.
