Using dep-checker with apache/mod_wsgi 7/23/2010 Stew Benedict <firstname.lastname@example.org> Instead of the built in django server, you can use apache and mod_wsgi fairly easily. 1) Put the dep-checker tree under DocumentRoot (or anywhere accessible to apache, in the example we use /var/www/html) 2) Edit settings.py and add the working directory to project_root_paths: project_root_paths = [ ".", "..", "/var/www/html/dep-checker" ] 3) Edit http.conf or possibly a seperate conf for mod_wsgi (/etc/httpd/modules.d/B23_mod_wsgi.conf on this system): WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/html/dep-checker/compliance/apache/django.wsgi The above line is required. The referenced file is provided by dep-checker. There are 2 sys.path.append entries you may need to modify for your setup. Some older versions of mod_wsgi will not work for applications using stdout (which dep-checker does to communicate with the task-manager). If your version has this issue, you will want to add the following directive: WSGIRestrictStdout Off If you find performance to be slow, you may want to run wsgi in daemon mode: WSGIDaemonProcess example.com threads=25 WSGIProcessGroup example.com More info on mod_wsgi configuration can be found here: http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/QuickConfigurationGuide 4) The sqlite database compliance/compliance must be writable by the user account running apache (apache on this system). The compliance directory must also be writable by this user for both database journal and the task.log file used by the task manager. Documentation for setting up django with mod_wsgi mentions serving the static media files by apache or another server, although in my experiments things seemed to work leaving things as they are currently setup.
