Hmmm... this is an interesting paragraph:
If you use embedded mode and don't change the settings you are likely
to have problems with running out of memory on memory constrained
systems and see load spikes which may cripple your system. These are
the same problems that can arise as when using mod_python and you
similarly haven't tuned the Apache MPM settings. You will need to
delve into the documentation on the mod_wsgi site for how to use
I'd recommend taking the rest of Django's suggestions for web
application deployment with a grain of salt: their "best practices"
always include crazy things such as building a lot of stuff by hand,
sometimes installing the products in system directories.
Side-stepping the OS package management can lead to a fragile system
which doesn't receive security updates, is hard to reproduce and breaks
on every update.
Always use system packages unless you're absolutely forced to. If
needed, install packages from the next release of Ubuntu or even Debian
unstable. Anything is safer and easier to maintain than downloading a
bunch of tarballs from random websites.
