Configuring Django: Not As Easy As You ThinkPosted: January 25, 2011
I have been struggling a while with a Django content loading problem. Given my web site is both in production and under development, I thought it might be a good thing to take my workstation and start the conversion from mod_python to mod_wsgi. It is always a good decision not to make major changes on your production system, but I’m beginning to think it was not a good idea on my workstation, either.
I am running apache on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and while it’s a desktop configuration, the server configuration was installed, so I could do development work. The whole process, including getting wsgi installed as been, as I’m fond of saying, one long root canal without Novocaine.
I am determined to succeed, because I believe in the basic premise of frame-based web development.
Tonight, I’m going into a Django meetup to hear about installation — a night that’s going to be snowing and cold — only because installation and configuration is the headliner topic. I will have to see what develops.
