How to activate CSRF token for Railway deployment

Hello good Django people!

I have two problems that i need help with, if you can please take a look.

I have successfully managed to (finally) upload a part of this web app i am working on, to Railway.

Problem #1
.env file is not working on Railway, so i had to move debug and secret key setup back to settings.py. Maybe someone can give an advice on this?

Problem #2:
CSRF token is not working when deployed to Railway. It is working totally fine in localhost, but on this live demo, it is not.

Forbidden (403)
CSRF verification failed. Request aborted.

Help
Reason given for failure:

    Origin checking failed - https://t3-production-7759.up.railway.app does not match any trusted origins.
    
In general, this can occur when there is a genuine Cross Site Request Forgery, or when Django’s CSRF mechanism has not been used correctly. For POST forms, you need to ensure:

Your browser is accepting cookies.
The view function passes a request to the template’s render method.
In the template, there is a {% csrf_token %} template tag inside each POST form that targets an internal URL.
If you are not using CsrfViewMiddleware, then you must use csrf_protect on any views that use the csrf_token template tag, as well as those that accept the POST data.
The form has a valid CSRF token. After logging in in another browser tab or hitting the back button after a login, you may need to reload the page with the form, because the token is rotated after a login.
You’re seeing the help section of this page because you have DEBUG = True in your Django settings file. Change that to False, and only the initial error message will be displayed.

You can customize this page using the CSRF_FAILURE_VIEW setting.

And here is my settings.py

I changed the secret key a bit, just wanted to show so you can see and maybe help :slight_smile:

Thank you!

Regarding the CSRF_TRUSTED_ORIGINS question, the specification must include the http:// (and/or https:// ) scheme with the domain name. (Also see Django 4.0 release notes | Django documentation | Django)
