Installer for Apache/mod_wsgi.
The mod_wsgi package provides an Apache module that implements a WSGI compliant interface for hosting Python based web applications on top of the Apache web server.
The primary package for mod_wsgi is available on the Python package index (PyPi) as mod_wsgi. That package assumes that you have a suitable version of Apache pre-installed on your target system, and if you don’t, installation of the package will fail.
If you are on a UNIX like system (Linux) and need a version of Apache to be installed for you, you can use the mod_wsgi-standalone package on PyPi instead. When installing the mod_wsgi-standalone package it will first trigger the installation of the mod_wsgi-httpd package, which will result in a version of Apache being installed as part of your Python installation. Next the mod_wsgi package will be installed, with it using the version of Apache installed by the mod_wsgi-httpd package rather than any system package for Apache.
This method of installation is only suitable for where you want to use mod_wsgi-express. It cannot be used to build mod_wsgi for use with your system Apache installation. This installation method will not work on Windows, and also currently fails on macOS because the Apache Runtime (APR) library, has not been updated to latest macOS versions.
When installing mod_wsgi using this method, except that you will install the mod_wsgi-standalone package instead of the mod_wsgi package, you should follow installation and usage instructions outlined on the PyPi page for the mod_wsgi package.
NOTE: Although this package may allow you to install a standalone Apache version, it is only really recommended that you use this package if you have absolutely no other choice for getting the Apache httpd server installed. Always use the Apache httpd server supplied with the operating system if you can. Building this package if you do choose to do so, will take some time. So if you you think the install is hanging, it is probably still busy compiling everything.
