$ /etc/init.d/httpd restart

Starting httpd: httpd: 
Syntax error on line 205 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: 
Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/ into server: 
/etc/httpd/modules/ cannot open shared object file: 
No such file or directory

file: httpd.conf

205: LoadModule wsgi_module modules/

Any ideas in how can I correct this error or how to share the file:, in order to be loaded and used by apache?

This may be for the following problems #

  • Your copy of mod_wsgi is compiler against a different version of python than what you have.
  • Your copy of libpython shared object file isn't in apache's library path

Following links may help you #

It is unlikely to be either. The error suggests that the file simply does not exist. – Graham Dumpleton Aug 24 '12 at 2:48
Yes, I agree with @GrahamDumpleton Sir, and for further i have shared the links – Mahbubur R Aaman Aug 24 '12 at 2:54

The error says that:


does not exist.


ls -las /etc/httpd/modules/

to prove whether it does or does not. If it doesn't then install mod_wsgi.

If it does exist, then validate if version of Python it is compiled against exists and/or is findable.
