I have developed a simple Python web service using WSGI and would like to deploy it to AWS cloud using Elastic Beanstalk. My problem is I cannot make all the options I specify in Elastic Beanstalk configuration to be correctly configured in the cloud.
For deployment, I use Elastic Beanstalk CLI utility. I have run
eb init command and set up the required parameters. After this, a directory named
.elasticbeanstalk was created in my source tree. It has two config files that are used for deployment, namely
optionsettings. The latter one among the other options contains the WSGI configuration that has to update
/etc/httpd/conf.d/wsgi.conf at the instances. After some of my adjustments the file has the following settings:
[aws:elasticbeanstalk:application:environment] DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE = PARAM1 = PARAM2 = PARAM4 = PARAM3 = PARAM5 = [aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:python] WSGIPath = handler.py NumProcesses = 2 StaticFiles = /static= NumThreads = 10 [aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:python:staticfiles] /static = static/ [aws:elasticbeanstalk:hostmanager] LogPublicationControl = false [aws:autoscaling:launchconfiguration] InstanceType = t1.micro EC2KeyName = zmicier-aws [aws:elasticbeanstalk:application] Application Healthcheck URL = [aws:autoscaling:asg] MaxSize = 10 MinSize = 1 Custom Availability Zones = [aws:elasticbeanstalk:monitoring] Automatically Terminate Unhealthy Instances = true [aws:elasticbeanstalk:sns:topics] Notification Endpoint = Notification Protocol = email
It turns out that not all of these options are considered when I start the environment or update it. Thus, when I update
NumProcesses, the respective parameters get changed in
wsgi.conf as expected. But whatever I write to the
StaticFiles parameters, I'm not able to automatically change the respective values of
wsgi.conf, they remain
Alias /static /opt/python/current/app/ WSGIScriptAlias / /opt/python/current/app/application.py
which drives me nuts. Moreover, when I deploy my application using
git aws.push and having the following contents of
.ebextensions/python.config file, neither of options I specify in it affects the deployment.
option_settings: - namespace: aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:python option_name: WSGIPath value: mysite/wsgi.py - namespace: aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:python option_name: NumProcesses value: 5 - namespace: aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:python option_name: NumThreads value: 25 - namespace: aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:python:staticfiles option_name: /static/ value: app/static/
I wonder what I should do to force AWS use all the parameters I specify in the configuration, namely the WSGI Path and path to my static data.
