Install Django on Fedora 35
Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:
sudo dnf upgrade sudo dnf update
Step 2. Installing Python3 and Pip3.
Now we install Python 3 on your Fedora system using the following command below:
sudo dnf install python3 python3-pip
Verify Python and pip version:
python3 -V pip3 -V
Step 3. Installing Django on Fedora 35.
By default, Django is not available on Fedora 35 base repository. Now install Django using the following command:

settings.py file and add IP under ALLOWED_HOSTS:
Add the following file:
ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['192.168.77.21']
Save and close, then start Django application server:
python3 manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8090
