Mounting Supervisor on a WebFaction subdomain

In a previous post I mentioned that you could mount your supervisor process on a sub domain so that you could view and manage your Django and Nginx processes from a web browser. In this post I’m going to show you how to do this.

First of all I’m going to assume that you have a domain called mydomain.com setup on webfaction, and that your supervisor process is listening on an app called supervisor.

To access your supervisor status via a web browser you need to take the following steps:
1) Make sure you have a suitable sub-domain setup – you do this from the domain menu on the webfaction control panel (I usually use status.mydomain.com) :

Check your Domain

Check your Domain


2) Create a new website which links the status subdomain and your supervisor app :
Create a new Website

Create a new Website


3) browse to http://status.mydomain.com/ and enter the password and username we set-up in the supervisor configuration – you did remember to do that didn’t you? ;)
