How to configure Apache server with Django for deployment on Virtual Machine
im currently trying to deploy my django project to a web server hosted by a RHEL-8 VM. Im trying to set up the VM to utilize HTTPD (apache). However, i can’t seem to get the Virtual Host configuration files right. I am pretty new to django and web servers as this is my first time deploying a web server. As such, i have been trying to do this for quite some time now and nothing online seems to work. As of recently i have tried more or less following this tutorial https://computingforgeeks.com/deploy-python-3-django-application-on-centos-with-apache-and-mod-wsgi/ on getting it deployed. As such, here is the code i have added into /etc/httpd/conf.d/django.conf:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org ServerName awesomedjango.com DocumentRoot /var/www/ Alias /static /var/www/awesomedjango/static <Directory "/var/www/awesomedjango/static"> Options FollowSymLinks Order allow,deny Allow from all Require all granted </Directory> ErrorLog /var/www/awesomedjango/logs/apis_error.log CustomLog /var/www/awesomedjango/logs/apis_access.log combined WSGIPassAuthorization On WSGIDaemonProcess awesomedjango python-path=/var/www/awesomedjango:/var/www/awesomedjango/venv/lib/python3.6/site-packages WSGIProcessGroup awesomedjango WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/awesomedjango/v/wsgi.py <Directory /var/www/awesomedjango/awesomedjango> <Files wsgi.py> Require all granted </Files> </Directory> </VirtualHost>
But when i try to restart apache to apply this via “’ apachectl restart ”’, i just receive these errors:
- httpd.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
- httpd.service: Failed with result ‘exit-code’.
- Failed to start The Apache HTTP Server.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as i cant seem to find a solution to my problem online. Thanks
