Installation on Apache with WSGI

This is what is used to host the Demo site & Trac (sharing just 128Mb RAM!)

If running on a UNIX variant (as would be recommended) then suggest using the Native Cron

vim /etc/crontab
0-59/1 * * * * www-data cd /var/www/web2py/ && python web2py.py -C -D 1 >> /tmp/cron.output 2>&1

cp /var/www/web2py/options_std.py /var/www/web2py/options.py
vim /var/www/web2py/options.py
extcron = True

Ubuntu

apt-get install libapache2-mod-wsgi
a2enmod rewrite
a2enmod deflate
a2enmod headers
a2enmod expires
vim /etc/apache2/sites-available/web2py

Refer to the following URL for WSGI configuration tuning http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/ConfigurationDirectives#WSGIDaemonProcess

<VirtualHost ip.ip.ip.ip:80>
  ServerName demo.sahanapy.org
  ServerAdmin webmaster@sahanapy.org
  DocumentRoot /var/www/web2py/applications 

  WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/web2py/wsgihandler.py
  ## Edit the process and the maximum-requests to reflect your RAM 
  WSGIDaemonProcess web2py user=www-data group=www-data home=/var/www/web2py processes=5 maximum-requests=50

  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteRule ^/$ /sahana/ [R]

  ### appadmin requires SSL

  ### static files do not need WSGI

Optimise by using GZip & Expires:

  ### static files do not need WSGI
  <LocationMatch "^(/[\w_]*/static/.*)">
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from all

    SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
