Install MoinMoin with mod_wsgi on Debian 6.0

Install everything:

apt-get update
apt-get install libapache2-mod-wsgi
apt-get install python-moinmoin

Create a special user for the wiki (locked out):

adduser moin
passwd -l moin

Copy files needed for the Moin instance:

cp -r /usr/share/moin/data /usr/share/moin/underlay /home/moin
chown -R moin:moin /home/moin/data/ /home/moin/underlay/
mkdir /home/moin/py-lib

There are 3 config files needed. The apache configuration ##moin-apache.conf##, the mod_wsgi app file ##moin.wsgi## and moinmoin's ##wikiconfig.py##.

cp /usr/share/moin/server/moin.wsgi /home/moin
cp /usr/share/moin/config/wikiconfig.py /home/moin/py-lib/wikiconfig.py

ln -s /home/moin/moin-apache.conf /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/001-moin

In the end just restart the Apache server. It should start several ##wsgi-moin## child processes.

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Typical config files:


WSGIScriptAlias / /home/moin/moin.wsgi
WSGIDaemonProcess moin user=moin group=moin home=/home/moin processes=5 threads=10 maximum-requests=1000 umask=0007 display-name=wsgi-moin python-path=/home/moin/py-lib
WSGIProcessGroup moin
Alias /moin_static193 "/usr/share/moin/htdocs/"


import sys, os

from MoinMoin.web.serving import make_application
application = make_application(shared=True)
