Subdomain Django Settings Conflict

October 11, 2016 390 views
Apache Django Ubuntu 16.04

Hi Guys,

I have a site with a set of sub-domains. When I visit one of those sub-domains including the actual domain, it sometimes shows an Internal Server Error on the browser and when I check the apache error.log it tells that it throws an ImportError :

I'll just post the files of the two out of five applications because I really can't figure out the error and I'm very bad at deploying to the actual server

How do I resolve this?

There are a couple possible solutions for this issue. In general this type of error is related to the directory path wsgi is using and can be corrected in some cases by renaming a folder and in others by adding a line (as mentioned in the link) to your wsgi.py to manually set the path.
