Deployment using mod_wsgi and apache. Below instructions will tell you how to quickly deploy your turbogears2 app using mod_wsgi.
You can install modwsgideploy from PyPi:
You also have a choice of getting the source and installing it. You should use this in a virtual environment, for example:
virtalenv --no-site-packages BASELINE source BASELINE/bin/activate
Install [:Bazaar:] if its not already installed on your system:
Branch out the code. This will pull all the revision history. If you want just the recent one use checkout:
bzr branch https://code.launchpad.net/~szybalski/modwsgideploy/trunk/ modwsgideploy_code
cd modwsgideploy_code/trunk python setup.py develop
Go into your python application project folder and type in:
Here is a typical installation, from start to finish on Debian Linux. You might have to use you OS specific commands for installing apache.
The steps are: 1) Install apache and modwsgi 2) Setup virtual environment and install tg2 3) Create tg2 app 'myapp' 4) Install modwsgideploy and tweak wsgi settings to fit your needs or use default settings. 5) Check if everything is running properly.
In this case I will install apache using tools available from my Linux operating system:
aptitude install apache2 aptitude install libapache2-mod-wsgi virtualenv --no-site-packages BASELINE source BASELINE/bin/activate easy_install -i http://www.turbogears.org/2.0/downloads/current/index tg.devtools paster quickstart myapp
Go into you app and run modwsgi_deploy command:
cd myapp paster modwsgi_deploy
You should see an apache folder like this inside 'myapp':
myapp |-- apache | |-- README.txt | |-- myapp | |-- myapp.wsgi | `-- test.wsgi
- Read the README.txt
- myapp is a apache configuration file that you need to copy into your apache configuration folder after all the settings are set.
- myapp.wsgi is an modwsgi script that is called from myapp apache file
- test.wsgi is a test script that you can call to see if you modwsgi was properly installed and working.
Edit myapp file to change any paths and/or apache configurations. Then copy to apache folder.
On my operating system I copy this file to:
cp ./apache/myapp /etc/apache2/sites-available/
Enable the website. On my OS its:
a2ensite myapp /etc/init.d/apache restart
If you have a useful sample wsgi script or apache config that you would like to share, please sent it to Turbogears mailing list.
