Deployment Steps

Install RHC

The first step is to create an account on OpenShift - it's free and easy.

The next step is to intstall RHC.RHC is the OpenShift client tool. The simplest way to install it is to do

sudo gem install rhc

Deploy the template Web2py app

. Now we create a blank web2py app and get it running on OpenShift. For this we use the following repo.

You can follow the instructions given in the readme except change the Python version to 2.7 instead of 2.6

The basic steps are-

Create a python-2.7 application

    rhc app create -a YOUR_APP_NAME -t python-2.7

Add this upstream repo

    cd web2py
    git remote add upstream -m master git://
    git pull -s recursive -X theirs upstream master

Note: If you want a specific release and not the latest snapshot, 
replace "master" with the branch name in the above lines (ie. 2.3.2).

Then push the repo upstream

    git push

That's it, you can now checkout your application at:


    # you'll be prompted for your namespace while creating your account, you needn't worry about it.
