I have a web host that allows python cgi. I've also written a wrapper
for a library. The wrapper is a subdirectory with an __init__.py
file. In the same subdirectory is a swig-generated c wrapper (
sqlitec.so ) that is imported by one of the files imported by
__init__.py. The main web application sits in the directory above the
.....\webapp\main.cgi (imports sqlitedb)
.....\webapp\sqlitedb\__init__.py (imports wrapper)
.....\webapp\sqlitedb\wrapper.py (imports sqlitec)
The code on 'main.cgi' contains an import: 'import sqlitedb'.
Python finds the sqlitedb python files, but can not find sqlitec.so.
They are runing Python 1.6.
How can I allow Python to see the loadable module? It is
possible/common for the web providers to disallow import of native
I've tried adding the following to main.cgi:
but that did did not fix anything.
If this works, we would be very close to having thread-safe
python-based web sites w/an sql database but without an sql server.
(Sqlite is a file-based database similar to gadfly).
