I am current trying to deploy a Flask Application (an API Application) onto Elastic Beanstalk. But I am getting mod_wsgi error.

Here is the error message:

[Fri Jun 01 06:10:49.314023 2018] [:warn] [pid 2801] mod_wsgi: Compiled for Python/3.6.2.

I have tried creating a .ebextension/package.config file and followed the instructions as shown in this link. ( Link: mod_wsgi "Call to 'site.addsitedir()' failed" on AWS Elastic Beanstalk Python 3.6 platform) It seems like the environment is not actually invoking the commands in the .ebextension.

Here is how I uploaded my files and deployed it onto AWS.

  • I compressed the files using the right click function on my mac
  • List item I used the AWS EB Console to upload and deploy the zip file

Am I missing something in this process?

Even after i relaunched the environment and restarted the server, I still get this error.

Can anyone help please, thank you!
