Python Question

Django + uwsgi + nginx . Import error: No module named py

I am trying to run my sample django application using uWSGI and nginx. But I am getting import error, no module named py. I am not sure where should I add the python path.

I am running with the following command.

sudo uwsgi --socket mysite.socket --module wsgi.py --chmod-socket=666.

I even tried passing path in the parameter
, still the same error.

This is how my wsgi.py looks like

enter code here

import os
os.environ.setdefault("DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE", "mysite.settings")
from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application
application = get_wsgi_application()

When I try running, I get the following messages

$ sudo uwsgi --socket mysite.socket --module wsgi.py --chmod-socket=666

The --module argument is presumably meant to be a Python module, not a file. So you probably just need --module=wsgi.
