Tutorial :How to properly set path to media files in Django



Question:

I've got a new project, and currently I'm trying to set it correctly. But somehow I can't make my media files work. Here's my current setting :

MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.normpath( '/home/budzyk/rails/fandrive/site_media/' )  

templates setting work on the other hand :

TEMPLATE_DIRS = (          "/home/budzyk/rails/fandrive/templates",  )  

Catalog with media files is ../fandrive/site-media/ so why it's not working ? Here's my base.html template with styles imported, and firebug window when my page is loaded :

<head>      <title>{% block title %}{% endblock %}</title>      <meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{{ MEDIA_URL }}css/style.css" />      {% block pagecss %}{% endblock %}      <script type="text/javascript" src="{{ MEDIA_URL }}jquery/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>  </head>  <body>      <div id="wrapper">

Solution:1

You are going to have to set this up on the web server or use the methods in the link below.

Solution:2

Setting MEDIA_ROOT doesn't magically serve your media files. You still need something to serve them from there and expose them on MEDIA_URL.
