Transifex + Django + nginx on Ubuntu

November 1st, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

You can probably also use this for just Django + nginx on Ubuntu too, it should work the same for any Django-based package, just change the Transifex-specific stuff (like /site_media and such.)


  • python-django package from Ubuntu (currently Jaunty's 1.0.2-1ubuntu0.1)
  • Transifex installed to /home/transifex/web/transifex, from source
  • Transifex setup to answer over fastcgi on port 8080
  • Tested on nginx 0.7.x and 0.8.x compiled from source


server {
   listen 80;
   server_name foo.com;
   include /etc/nginx/confs/defaults.conf;
   location / {
      include /etc/nginx/confs/django.conf;
   location /site_media {
      root /home/transifex/web/transifex;
      include /etc/nginx/confs/expires.conf;
   location /media {         
      root /usr/share/python-support/python-django/django/contrib;
      include /etc/nginx/confs/expires.conf;


location ~ /\.ht {
   deny all;

location ~ \.svn {
   deny all;

log_not_found off;
server_name_in_redirect off;
