Configuring Django and MariaDB on CentOS 7

Submitted by aknnn on Mon, 10/01/2018 - 01:07

This tutorial will demonstrate how to install Django and MariaDB on CentOS 7

Preferably inside virtual environment execute:
pip3 install django

MariaDB is needed (If you want, you can use mysql instead)
for this you need to enable MariaDB repos.

Inside /etc/yum.repos.d/ create file MariaDB.repo with contents:

name = MariaDB
baseurl =
gpgkey =
gpgcheck = 1

Install required MariaDB packages:
yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client

django-admin startproject project_name
This will create a folder with the project_name to the current working directory.

install pymysql (Python MySQL connector)
pip3 install pymysql

Start MariaDB, login as root, create user, add database and add permissions to user (this user will be used to connect django to database):
systemctl enable mariadb <-- makes mariadb start at boot
systemctl start mariadb  <-- root user will be created, write your credentials down for later usage.
mysql -u root -p  <-- password will be prompted.

Now you should be logged in to mariadb shell as root user. Execute following commands:
CREATE DATABASE example_database;
CREATE USER 'example_username'@'localhost;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON example_database.* TO 'example_username'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'example_password';

Now you can quit mysql.

Edit project_name/project_name/ to include these lines:
import pymysql

Go to file in the same folder. Find DATABASES dictionary and edit it as follows:

    'default' : {
        'ENGINE'        : 'django.db.backends.mysql',
        'NAME'            : 'project_name',
        'USER'            : 'example_username',
        'PASSWORD' : 'example_password',
        'HOST'            : 'localhost',
        'PORT'            : '',

If gods are in our side, you should be able to run:
python3 runserver
if that passes, you can try to visit your server port 8000 with a web browser

if that doesn't go trough, theres probably something wrong with your firewall settings. Fix them and try again.

Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?
I'm looking to start my own blog in the near
future but I'm having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm
looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot
drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has
83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had
to share it with someone!

Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine
but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
great blog!
