Installing API behind mod_wsgi

  1. Install the Apache Service:

    Fedora 21/RHEL7/CentOS7:
      sudo yum install httpd
    Fedora 22 (or higher):
      sudo dnf install httpd
      apt-get install apache2
  2. Copy etc/apache2/watcher.conf under the apache sites:

      sudo cp etc/apache2/watcher /etc/httpd/conf.d/watcher.conf
      sudo cp etc/apache2/watcher /etc/apache2/sites-available/watcher.conf
  3. Edit <apache-configuration-dir>/watcher.conf according to installation and environment.

    • Modify the WSGIDaemonProcess directive to set the user and group values to appropriate user on your server.

    • Modify the WSGIScriptAlias directive to point to the watcher/api/app.wsgi script.

    • Modify the Directory directive to set the path to the Watcher API code.

    • Modify the ErrorLog and CustomLog to redirect the logs to the right directory.

  4. Enable the apache watcher site and reload:

      sudo systemctl reload httpd
      sudo a2ensite watcher
      sudo service apache2 reload
