Introduction

As production run of a Django application, we can use tradition web server tools such as apache, IIS, etc. For example, I will show you to setup django running under apache as below.

Step 1 Install wsgi

Suppose you have already installed python, django, apache, then you need to install wsgi by running command:

sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-wsgi

Step 2

Edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf as below:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName www.goldman168.no-ip.org
        #ServerAllas www.localhost
        ServerAdmin goldman.au168@gmail.com

        DocumentRoot /var/www/html/django-survey-master/
        WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/html/django-survey-master/survey/wsgi.py

        Errorlog /var/www/logs/error.log
        CustomLog /var/www/logs/custom.log combined
</VirtualHost>

Step 3.

Edit /etc/apache2/apache.conf to add the following line to the end:

WSGIPythonPath /var/www/html/django-survey-master

Step 4.

Restart apache service by running command:  /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Step 5.

Now, you do not need to run the django command (python manage.py runserver) to start the django application, you can browse the django application with link http://localhost/ via apache.
