I am having an issue deploying a flask app on apache2 using wsgi. I have posted the error logs and config files below. I have tried moving things around, renaming them, etc, but all give me an internal server error. Not sure why I'm getting the import error. Any input / suggestions are appreciated, thanks!
Here is my apache error.log
[Sun Sep 12 20:47:59 2010] [error] [client] mod_wsgi (pid=9753): Target WSGI script '/sites/flaskfirst/wsgi.py' cannot be loaded as Python module. [Sun Sep 12 20:47:59 2010] [error] [client] mod_wsgi (pid=9753): Exception occurred processing WSGI script '/sites/flaskfirst/wsgi.py'.

# This is wsgi.py from app import app as application

Here is the basics of the directory tree, to give you an idea.
/flaskfirst/ /static/ /templates/ /views/ __init__.py app.py wsgi.py
Here is the apache virtualhost file
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org ServerName crath.org DocumentRoot /sites/flaskfirst # WSGI Settings WSGIScriptAlias / /sites/flaskfirst/wsgi.py WSGIDaemonProcess flaskfirst user=sreustle group=general processes=1 threads=10 WSGIProcessGroup flaskfirst # Static Directories Alias /static /sites/flaskfirst/static/ <Location "/static"> SetHandler None </Location> </VirtualHost>
damjan on irc.freenode.org at #pocoo, they were able to help me get this fixed. The problem was the PythonPath was not correct. We fixed this by using the following wsgi.py
import sys sys.path.insert(0, "/sites/flaskfirst") from app import app application = app
I used your solution to get it working but it kept duplicating the path in sys.path (you can write it out to see if it happens to you) so I made a little modification:
import sys flaskfirst = "/sites/flaskfirst" if not flaskfirst in sys.path: sys.path.insert(0, flaskfirst) from app import app application = app
That way it's only included once
