Providing initial data for Django App on Koyeb

Hello. I’d like to migrate my Django App from Heroku to Koyeb.

However, there was a problem in the process of putting pre-prepared initial data into the database of the Django App.

In Heroku, the initial data could be put into the DB with a single line of the command, heroku run python loaddata <fixturename> -a <APP_NAME>(How to provide initial data for models | Django documentation | Django).

But it doesn’t work the same way on Koyeb (maybe it’s a virtual environment problem).

If I have to activate Python’s virtual environment, I don’t know how to activate it in the Koyeb console.

Is there a way to execute Django’s loaddata command in Koyeb console?

In Koyeb, I don’t know how to provide the initial data for Django App.

Hi @jytorch :wave:

Can you run the following command to load and set the environment:

source .profile.d/

Then you should be able to properly exec ./ and load your initial data.

Let me know if it solves the issue.

I think it’s probably because of the permission issue, what should I do?

Can you use bash instead of sh? It should fix your issue.

Thank you, the virtual environment is well activated.

However, the process is interrupted while loading the initial data. (I searched, and I think it’s Out of Memory issue.)

Can’t I solve this problem?

Glad to hear that it worked!

About the new issue you are facing, changing your service instance size to a bigger one should solve the problem.
