I am trying to publish my site on an Amazon's EC2 Instance, and I keep getting a 500 error. I really don't know why.
[Sun Feb 17 23:12:48.066802 2013] mod_wsgi (pid=2102): Target WSGI script '/srv/www/app/poka/apache/wsgi.py' cannot be loaded as Python module.

I know that this is an old thread but I've just bumped into the same issue and I don't think that this is caused by a missing package. As the Django core distribution contains the correct wsgi handler already.
The problem here is that when wsgi.py is executed it's missing the packages of the site-packages from your virtualenv. (If you have activated your virtualenv, and done pip install django then everything is fine. You have the necessary django packages).
As far as I'm concerned, I fixed the issue modifying the sys.path in my Path/to/Project/Project/wsgi.py file.
You have to append your project dir and your virtualenv site-packages to the sys.path List. Here is my wsgi.py file contained in my project (Talking about the wsgi.py created with django-admin.py start-project)... that I had to modify in order to make it work with Apache
# ===================== # wsgi.py file begin import os, sys # add the hellodjango project path into the sys.path sys.path.append('<PATH_TO_MY_DJANGO_PROJECT>/hellodjango') # add the virtualenv site-packages path to the sys.path sys.path.append('<PATH_TO_VIRTUALENV>/Lib/site-packages') # poiting to the project settings os.environ.setdefault("DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE", "hellodjango.settings") from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application application = get_wsgi_application() # wsgi.py file end # ===================
you added mod_wsgi to the Apache modules dir mod_wsgi must be compiled for the OS, Apache and Python version you have
added the load module command into your httpd.conf to load mod_wsgi module LoadModule wsgi_module modules/mod_wsgi.so
configured Django specifics in your httpd.conf or any conf you include in your httpd.conf
Based on the documentation How to use Django with Apache and mod_wsgi
WSGIScriptAlias / <PATH_TO_PROJECT>/hellodjango/hellodjango/wsgi.py WSGIPythonPath <PATH_TO_PROJECT>:<PATH_TO_VIRTUALENV>/Lib/site-packages <Directory <PATH_TO_PROJECT>/hellodjango/hellodjango> <Files wsgi.py> Order deny,allow Require all granted </Files> </Directory>
Hope this helps. It worked for me.
I had the same issue. My libapache2-mod-wsgi was python 2.x and not python 3.x
found the solution here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/28118284/2489042

$ sudo apt-get remove libapache2-mod-python libapache2-mod-wsgi $ sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3
Warning from @alxs before you copy/paste these commands: If there are python 2 projects running on the server that use wsgi and apache, the above commands will effectively shut them down.
