[Solved]-Have to Restart Apache When Using Django On Apache with mod_wsgi


mod_wsgi is great for production but I think the included server is better for development.

Anyway you should read this about automatic reloading of source code.


I feel like this is really just one of those things most people deal with. It’s really not that big of a deal. I made a bash script to make this as easy as possible. I name it ‘ra’ (reload apache) so it’s short and quick. The following works for most apache installs (on UNIX-based systems):

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 reload

You could probably use some kind of tool to bind this to a key shortcut/foot pedeal/cron.
