Hi Christian ,
I changed the RBSITE/conf/settings_local.py to have PythonDebug True
and then I checked the APACHE/logs/error_log. I found that
"settings_local.py" was being imported (with complete Path to RBSITE)
Also all other modules (of RB, Django etc were being picked from the
Virtual-python Install directories (as expected))
Here is the snap of Apache config
LoadModule python_module modules/mod_python.so
Allow from all
# Error handlers
ErrorDocument 500 /errordocs/500.html
# Serve django pages
PythonPath "[' RBOARD_PATH_TO/www/HOSTNAME.SITE.COMPANY.com/conf']
SetEnv DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE reviewboard.settings
SetEnv PYTHON_EGG_CACHE "RBOARD_PATH_TO/www/HOSTNAME.SITE.COMPANY.com/
SetEnv HOME "RBOARD_PATH_TO/www/HOSTNAME.SITE.COMPANY.com/data"
# Used to run multiple mod_python sites in the same apache
# Serve static media without running it through mod_python
# (overrides the above)
Allow from all
# Alias static media requests to filesystem
Alias /media "RBOARD_PATH_TO/www/HOSTNAME.SITE.COMPANY.com/htdocs/
Alias /errordocs "RBOARD_PATH_TO/www/HOSTNAME.SITE.COMPANY.com/
Also here is the Complete Tools version
1. Apache 2.2.17 : Locally compiled with only mod_python.so module
2. virtual-python installation : Uses Python2.6.1
3. $PATH set to the new Python bin location
4. Mod_python 3.3.1 installed in the virtual-python location (Virtual-
python-Path/lib/python2.6/site-packages)(Tested it by loading the
modules from the Shell which picks correctly the virtual-python
5. ReviewBoard 1.5.1-py2.6 (Installed using virtual-python/bin/
easy_install . Correctly installed in the Virtual-python-Path/lib/
6. Easy_install installed the following dependencies of ReviewBoard
