I wish to link my Python project to some wsgi file. I'm using mod_wsgi.

I'd like my Python project to become situated in /var/www/myProject/start.py.

I have set up Apache the following:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName www.example.me
    ServerAlias example.me
    ServerAdmin example@gmail.com
    DocumentRoot /usr/local/www/documents
    LogLevel warn

    Alias /robots.txt /usr/local/www/documents/robots.txt
    Alias /favicon.png /usr/local/www/documents/favicon.png
    Alias /media/ /usr/local/www/documents/media/

    <Directory /usr/local/www/documents>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

    WSGIScriptAlias / /usr/local/www/wsgi-scripts/myApp.wsgi

    <Directory /usr/local/www/wsgi-scripts>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

To date this is exactly what I've in myApp.wsgi file:

import web

urls = (
    '/.*', 'hello',

class hello:
    def GET(self):
        return "Hello, world"

application = web.application(urls, globals()).wsgifunc()

What must i do to be able to link my project that is situated in /var/www/myProject/start.py to become known as by myApp.wsgi?

It appears you have start.py inside a different directory which you need to invoke from wsgi.py.

  • Within this situation, you have to in some way tell wsgi.py to have the ability to import a module from the different folder. This thread has some particulars on that.

An easy method is to have wsgi file within the same folder because the start.py, and merely import and load the applying after that.. something similar to:

import start

Replace final argument to WSGIScriptAlias with '/var/www/myProject/start.py'.

Change reference in Directory directive to '/var/www/myProject'. Quite simply, just set the configuration to suggest towards the correct location to begin with.
