I want to build mod_wsgi against a Python which I have built myself from source code in Ubuntu. (You can see specifically how I built it in How would I build python myself from source code on Ubuntu?)
I tried running this from within the mod_wsgi-3.3 directory:
$ sudo ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs \ --with-python=/usr/local/share/man/man1/python2.7.1
which was probably pretty naive since I know that python2.7.1 is just a text file and not an executable, which the command probably expects. I ended up getting a bunch of Permission denied messages even though I ran it in sudo.
So how would I build mod_wsgi against a Python that has been built from source code?
Also, are there any inherent issues I should expect in the future in having the Python I built and the default Ubuntu Python co-existing in separate directories?
./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-python=/usr/local/share/man/man1/python2.7.1
I would assume you would want to use:
./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-python=/usr/local/bin/python2.7.1
I think you want to tell mod_wsgi to use the path to the python executable rather than the man page
The documentation is pretty clear about what was required.
