I looked at APScheduler and like Celery it is too much of a sledgehammer for my tiny problem.

I ended up using cron to launch the command each day. It works perfectly.

My task now is to find a way to automate establishment of that crontab entry when the project is migrated to a new server.

How are new servers deployed? How many new servers will be deployed?
If it's a one off thing you are doing manually, you just have to
remember to do it. If there are many, then you should use a tool like
terraform or octopus, or something similar and have that do it.

I use django-crontab myself for cron jobs. That way, I can add or update easily during deployment. Maybe you can make use of that so you can keep everything in your project.
