View Full Version : Is mod_python really dead?

So, after the responses in this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1542940) thread, I decided to ditch php for python for server side coding. Mod_python was recommended and seems to work quite well.

But, take a look at this article (http://blog.dscpl.com.au/2010/05/modpython-project-soon-to-be-officially.html), this post (http://blog.dscpl.com.au/2010/06/modpython-project-is-now-officially.html) and this one (http://www.charlesdietrich.com/blog/2009/02/10/mod_python-is-dead-long-live-mod_wsgi/). These claim that mod_python is dead! And further that mod_wsgi should be used in its place, but I've only ever heard people recommend mod_python.

People commenting on these posts claim there are terrible bugs in mod_python, apparently it destabilises apache.

Time to switch to mod_wsgi?

wsgi is the way to go. It's used by most if not all python frameworks and it's quick and easy to work with. What's not to like?
