I try to install searx with python3 on a VPS which support python (a2Hosting).


I ran successfully via the web Execute command

pip3 install -r /home/srxglbr/searx/requirements.txt
python3 /home/srxglbr/searxsearx/

and I'm able to access it via SSH

and a bunch of module were installed

I think I'm on the right track but...

I could see it's running

srxglbr   981530  0.0  0.0  10524   436 ?        S    16:57   0:00 /usr/sbin/proxyexec -c cagefs.sock srxglbr hdjkS9Vx7z7B2R97 /home/srxglbr CAGEFS_ENTER 981485 /bin/bash -c source /home/srxglbr/virtualenv/searx/3.5/bin/activate && python3 /home/srxglbr/searx/searx/
srxglbr   981535  0.0  0.0 113672  1536 ?        S    16:57   0:00 /bin/bash -c source /home/srxglbr/virtualenv/searx/3.5/bin/activate && python3 /home/srxglbr/searx/searx/
srxglbr   981536  0.2  0.0 439168 60972 ?        S    16:57   0:02 python3 /home/srxglbr/searx/searx/

They use LiteSpeed with WGI

I know it LiteSpeed is 100% compatible with Apache syntax
but what about WGI vs USWGI ?

  • they using

I tried to run with a WSGI file location pointing to ~/etc/searx.ini without success

# Who will run the code
uid = srxglbr
gid = srxglbr

# disable logging for privacy
disable-logging = true

# Number of workers (usually CPU count)
workers = 4

# The right granted on the created socket
chmod-socket = 666

# Plugin to use and interpretor config
single-interpreter = true
master = true
plugin = python
lazy-apps = true
enable-threads = true

# Module to import
module = searx.webapp

# Virtualenv and python path
virtualenv = /home/srxglbr/virtualenv/searx/3.5/
pythonpath = /home/srxglbr/searx/
chdir = /home/srxglbr/searx/searx/

So I don't know
Do someone have an idea ?
