I'm working on setting up Trac to use wsgi, and am running into trouble getting mod_wsgi working. I downloaded and installed mod_sgi.

[box]# apachectl configtest

httpd: Syntax error on line 214 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Can't locate API module structure `mod_wsgi' in file /etc/httpd/modules/mod_wsgi.so: /etc/httpd/modules/mod_wsgi.so: undefined symbol: mod_wsgi

Line 214 of httpd.conf:

LoadModule mod_wsgi modules/mod_wsgi.so

Here is mod_wsgi.so as found on the filesystem:

[box]# locate mod_wsgi.so

What might I be overlooking?

The line:

LoadModule mod_wsgi modules/mod_wsgi.so

is wrong. It should have been:

LoadModule wsgi_module modules/mod_wsgi.so

Upgrading itself should not have made any difference.

This particular problem was solved by installing python26-mod_wsgi.so.
