documentation are both available from:

The mod_wsgi package consists of an Apache web server module designed
and implemented specifically for hosting Python based web applications
that support the WSGI interface specification.

Examples of major Python web frameworks and applications which are
known to work in conjunction with mod_wsgi include CherryPy, Django,
MoinMoin, Pylons, Trac, TurboGears and Zope.

Version 2.0 of mod_wsgi contains numerous new features including
simplified application reloading, Apache authentication provider
hooks, better Python virtual environment support and support for WSGI
optional file wrapper extension. Base level performance of daemon mode
has also been boosted by up to 40% for a simple hello world
application, further reducing the network level overhead of using this
