Installing the API via WSGI

This document provides two WSGI methods as examples:

  • uWSGI
  • Apache mod_wsgi

The "" file

qinling/api/ file sets up the API WSGI application, it has to be copied into /var/www/cgi-bin/qinling directory.

mkdir -p /var/www/cgi-bin/qinling
cp qinling/api/ /var/www/cgi-bin/qinling
chown qinling:qinling -R /var/www/cgi-bin/qinling

Running with Apache and mod_wsgi

The etc/apache2/qinling-api.conf file contains an example of Apache virtualhost configured with mod_wsgi.


  1. On deb-based systems copy or symlink the file to /etc/apache2/sites-available.

    For rpm-based systems the file will go in /etc/httpd/conf.d.

  2. Modify the WSGIDaemonProcess directive to set the user and group values to an appropriate user on your server. In many installations qinling will be correct. Modify the WSGIScriptAlias directive to set the path of the wsgi script.

    If you are using a virtualenv WSGIDaemonProcess requires python-path parameter, the value should be <your-venv-path>/lib/python<your-version>/site-packages.

  3. Enable the qinling-api virtualhost.

    On deb-based systems:

    a2ensite qinling-api
    systemctl reload apache2

    On rpm-based systems:

    systemctl reload httpd

Running with uWSGI

The etc/uwsgi/qinling-api.yaml file contains an example of uWSGI configuration.

  1. Create the qinling-api.yaml file.


  2. Then start the uWSGI server:

    uwsgi ./qinling-api.yaml

    Or start in background with:

    uwsgi -d ./qinling-api.yaml
