Please help me out, I have been trying to resolve this error from a long time.

when i restart Apache and type :sudo /usr/sbin/apachectl -t, I get an output like:

[Fri Aug 24 17:02:58 2012] [warn] module wsgi_module is already loaded, skipping
Syntax OK  

What is going wrong?

I have checked the wsgi.load file in etc/apache2/mods-enabled. It loads the only once and I have installed libapache-mod-wsgi from the source.

Have you looked at your configuration and verified that you aren't loading the module twice in the conf files, as suggested by @GrahamDumpleton's answer on the question he linked? – pjmorse Sep 18 '12 at 13:38
Look for the module's name anywhere in the Apache directory: find /etc/apache2 |xargs grep -s -i wsgi – LinuxDevOps Apr 1 '14 at 14:29

You are likely loading the module multiple times. Check in your conf.d directory. grep LoadModule /etc/httpd/conf.d/*.conf and see what modules each config are attempting to load.
