Jam.py deployment with Apache and mod_wsgi¶
Once you’ve got
mod_wsgi installed and activated, edit your Apache server’s
httpd.conf file and add the following. If you are using a version of Apache older
than 2.4, replace Require all granted with Allow from all and also add
the line Order deny,allow above it.
WSGIScriptAlias / /path/to/mysite.com/mysite/wsgi.py WSGIPythonPath /path/to/mysite.com <Directory /path/to/mysite.com/mysite> <Files wsgi.py> Require all granted </Files> </Directory> Alias /static/ /path/to/mysite.com/static/ <Directory /path/to/mysite.com/static> Require all granted </Directory>
The first bit in the
WSGIScriptAlias line is the base URL path you want to
serve your application at (
/ indicates the root url), and the second is the
location of a “WSGI file” – see below – on your system, usually inside of
your project package (
mysite in this example). This tells Apache to serve
any request below the given URL using the WSGI application defined in that
WSGIPythonPath line ensures that your project package is available for
import on the Python path; in other words, that
import mysite works.
<Directory> piece just ensures that Apache can access your
The next lines ensure that anything in the
/static/ URL space is explicitly
served as a static files.
