How to install Python and mod_wsgi on Windows for Web development

This describes Python and mod_wsgi installation to run Python web apps on Windows 7 (or other Windows 32/64 version).


  • WampServer, it will install Apache, MySQL (and PHP) on your computer
  • Latest Python version or some previous release
  • Download mod_wsgi.so file (a WSGI adapter module for the Apache HTTP Server) and put it to C:\Program Files\wamp\bin\apache\ApacheX.X.XX\modules folder
  • Add this line to httpd.conf file:
    LoadModule wsgi_module modules/mod_wsgi.so
  • Restart Apache

Now you have everything installed to run Python web projects on your Windows PC.
After that you must configure your mod_wsgi application and you are done.
