Description of the process of running python scripts on a Linux server.
Python alternatives to cron are timer or periodic tasks (celery).
The server must be configured to work with python. I will repeat the main points from the article at the link.
The python packages must be installed on the server:
sudo apt install python3-pip python3-dev python3-setuptools build-essential libssl-dev libffi-dev
The python3-venv package is installed:
sudo apt install python3-venv
Put the files in the required directory and create a virtual environment there:
At the top of the python file, add a line leading to the python virtual environment:
#! / home / user-name / project / venv / bin / python
Make file executable:
chmod + x ploshadka.net.py
If you need dependencies (modules) for the file, you can install them separately through the requirements.txt file.
Adding to cron
There is a separate article on working with cron in Linux.
Open crown file:
Add our script:
0 12 * * * ~/project/app/python_script.py > ~/project/logs/python_script.log 2> &one
The line consists of: startup time / startup script / startup log (if there are no errors, it will be empty if nothing is specifically output there).
The path to the modules is not visible. Use this article.
