I would like to use some python scripts with my PHP-based application. I don't want to install Django; just mod_wsgi, so Apache can execute my python scripts as well as the rest of my PHP site. How do I configure Apache to do this?

Getting Apache to use wsgi is as simple as making sure you have mod_wsgi.so availible and using a LoadModule directive.

However, you have to realize that WSGI is not a framework, and using it to write a script will not be anywhere near as simple as using php. If you don't want to use Django, I would recommend using some framework. Perhaps Flask
