The mod_wsgi package implements a simple to use Apache module which can host any Python application which supports the Python WSGI interface.

Renewed development on mod_wsgi began early 2014, with a considerable amount of new development work and fixes being performed. This included the ability to install mod_wsgi using ‘pip’, along with an admin command called mod_wsgi-express which provides a really simple way of starting up Apache/mod_wsgi with an automatically generated configuration.

Completely revised documentation will progressively be incorporated here. In the mean time keep referring to the older documentation at:
