What is mod_wsgi?The mod_wsgi adapter is an Apache module that provides a simple WSGI-compliant interface for hosting Python-based web applications.
The adapter is written completely in C code using the Apache C runtime. As such, it has a lower overhead for hosting WSGI applications in Apache than existing WSGI adapters on top of mod_python or CGI.
If you're not familiar with Python or WSGI, see the Python home page or the WSGI spec.
Compiling mod_wsgiThe package can be compiled for and used with either Apache 1.3, 2.0 or 2.2, although some features are only available on Apache 2.X running on UNIX. When running on UNIX systems, either the single threaded 'prefork' or multithreaded 'worker' Apache MPMs can be used. Development and testing of mod_wsgi has been carried out with Python 2.3.5, but is expected to be able to work with any version of Python 2.3, or later versions of Python.
