From the docs:

If you need to run system checks on your deployment server, trigger them explicitly using check.


What is a "deployment server"?

I tried tried to find the answer in the "Deployment checklist" (
But no luck. There the I find

"application server" and "web server" and "development server".

... I am confused :-)

A glossary or definition of the basics words would make it clear.

It's the server to which you deploy your code. I wonder if a web search for what is a deployment server would have answered your question. I'm not sure if it merits further explanation in Django's documentation as I guess it assumes some basic knowledge in web development but you can either propose a patch or close this issue if this answer seems sufficient.

It is strange, that the term "deployment server" is not used in the docs with the title "Deployment checklist".

Please take the fundamental words serious. Especially in this area most dev teams go their own way. That's why I think a definition/glossary would help.
