After restarting a
lighttpd server recently I haven't been able to get it up and running again. I am running a python built API service on it, and am relying on the
web.py module to run the application.
I am having difficulty getting the
MySQLdb Python module to import. That specific import causes everything to error out and produce a
500 error when I try and hit the API.
Initially, I thought that it was just a matter of permissions since I was able to import the module when running python from the command line. When I saw that running
MySQLdb from the command line worked, I went on and changed the permissions of the Python code and the Python egg for the module to 755. This hasn't fixed the problem, however. I am not exactly certain what will be most helpful to post here, so I will include some configuration settings and other general facts about the server.
To clarify, I am able to get a
Hello, World! message to print with my
lighttpd setup, and have also confirmed that the
lighttpd server is using the correct Python version (i.e 1.7.3).
Location of MySQLDb Python Module code:
Location of Python 3rd Party Modules/eggs:
Lighttpd FastCGI Setup for Python:
server.modules = ("mod_fastcgi","mod_accesslog","mod_rewrite", "mod_access", "mod_redirect", "mod_proxy") server.document-root = "/home/OverLord/" fastcgi.server = ( "/code.py" => (( "bin-environment" => ( "REAL_SCRIPT_NAME" => "" ), "socket" => "/tmp/fastcgi.socket", "bin-path" => "/opt/python2.7/bin/python /home/OverLord/code.py", "check-local" => "disable", "max-procs" => 1 )) )
Any ideas would be great. I have spent too much time losing my mind over this. Thanks!
