I'm getting some strange errors that I've worked through to this point.
I have an Ubuntu server setup with Apache + mod_wsgi + Django. When I'm SSH'd into the server, I can access the website fine from a browser on a different machine, and everything looks splendid. When I'm not SSH'd in, I get a 404 Not Found on my Browser, with this as the error in my Apache logs:
[Wed Apr 18 10:15:02 2012] [error] [client ..*.*] Target WSGI script not found or unable to stat: /home/zen/kiosk
(The thing that bothers me the most about this error, is that the target WSGI script is not the full path I have listed in my apache config file)
- Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit
- Apache 2.2.16
- Python 2.6.6
- Django 1.3.1
- mod_wsgi 3.2
Alias /static/ /home/zen/kiosk/static/ User zen <Directory /home/zen/kiosk/static> Order deny,allow Allow from all </Directory> WSGIScriptAlias / /home/zen/kiosk/server/config/django.wsgi #Alias / /home/zen/kiosk/server/config/django.wsgi <Directory /home/zen/kiosk/server/config> Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
When Using just Alias instead of WSGIScriptAlias (as commented out in the Config file), I'm able to see the wsgi file if I'm SSH'd in, but get the same 404 I get up above with this as the error message:
[Wed Apr 18 11:10:01 2012] [error] [client ..*.*] File does not exist: /home/zen/kiosk
WSGI Config (/home/zen/kiosk/server/config/django.wsgi)

Everything /home/zen/kiosk and under were chmoded to 755, but that didn't really seem to matter.

When I remove "User zen" from the Apache Config file, I get the following error instead of the Target WSGI script one, as long as I'm not SSH'd into the server.
[Wed Apr 18 10:29:02 2012] [error] [client ..*.*] (13)Permission denied: access to /login/ denied
Where my Browser has a 403 Forbidden error. This error also doesn't occur when I'm SSH'd in.
This feels like some Permissions error, or maybe some issue with some Path variables. Unfortunately, I'm kind of stuck at this point and I'm not sure what else to try.
Edit: I saw on a different thread someone ask for this command (dpkg -l *apache* |grep -E '^ii') so I figured I'd add it now. I used to have prefork but switched to worker when someone suggested it might help. The error was occurring with prefork and in worker exactly the same.

Edit2: Looks like this has to do with an Encrypted Home Directory, which I was unaware of I had on this server. I can't post an answer for it yet due to Reputation, but I will when I can so other people with the same issue will be able to figure out the deal much quicker.
