  • DJANGO_CONFIGURATION - This should be set to Base for most production deployments.
  • DJANGO_SECRET_KEY - This should be a long random string.
  • DJANGO_ALLOWED_HOSTS - This should be the hostname (and only the hostname) the deployment can be reached at. It may be multiple values separated by commas. Example:,
  • DJANGO_DATABASES - This should be set to a DB URL for your database. Example: sqlite:// for an in-memory sqlite storage. Heroku sets this automatically.
