Thanks, this seems to have done the trick ... now to get the problems that are my fault fixed [by ensorceled]
I have just installed python2.6 and mod_wsgi on my MediaTemple CentOS5.8 server. I had to install python2.6 along side the default python version of 2.4. I then compiled mod_wsgi telling it to use python2.6.
I'm trying to compile mod_wsgi (version 3.2) against python 2.7.5. I am trying to run Django as a wsgi application using apache in a amazon linux image which comes with python 2.6.9 by default.
