Install Apache and mod_python
=============================
Currently, Django runs on Apache_ with `mod_python`_, although we're planning
full WSGI support, which means Django will run on a variety of server
platforms.
Currently, Django runs on Apache_ with `mod_python`_. mod_python is similar to
mod_perl -- it embeds Python within Apache and loads Python code into memory
when the server starts. Code stays in memory throughout the life of an Apache
process, which leads to significant performance gains over CGI.
Make sure you have Apache installed, with the mod_python module activated.
If you can't use mod_python for some reason, fear not: We're planning full WSGI_
support, which means Django will run on a variety of server platforms.
For the time being, make sure you have Apache installed, with the mod_python
module activated.
