Target WSGI script looks for wrong file extension
I’m running a flask site and encountered an issue when setting up the virtual host because I initially typed the wrong file extension.
On /etc/apache2/sites-available/researchcenter.conf, I have
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName xxx.com ServerAdmin email@example.com WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/html/researchcenter/researchcenter.wsgi <Directory /var/www/html/researchcenter/app/> Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> Alias /static /var/www/html/researchcenter/app/static <Directory /var/www/researchcenter/app/static/> Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> ErrorLog /var/www/html/researchcenter/logs/error.log LogLevel warn CustomLog /var/www/html/researchcenter/logs/access.log combined </VirtualHost>
Unfortunately, I initially entered WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/html/researchcenter/researchcenter.w$ (please see the file extension should be .wsgi)
When I retrieve the domain name in the browser, I get a Not Found. The log reads:
Target WSGI script not found or unable to stat: /var/www/html/researchcenter/researchcenter.w$
I restarted apache after changing the file extension.
The file permissions for researchcenter.wsgi are 644.
I’d appreciate the help.
