I am trying to follow this tutorial . I am new to using python with apache and more generally in web apps. This tuto refers to libapache2-mod-python. This module is not available in Fedora. According to what I read on the web, it had been replaced with mod_python for a while, then, according to this thread , with mod_wsgi.

As I am also new to Fedora, I am asking how should I interpret this sentences in the tuto:

You have to add the following lines into /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default:

    AddHandler mod_python .py 

         PythonHandler mod_python.publisher 

         PythonDebug On

But, normally according to this page that says: " This (mod_wsgi) is installed as a Python module using or pip and without needing manual intervention with the Apache configuration", I should not have to intervene in the apache configuration. Nevertheless when trying to install the module with :

$ python -m pip install mod_wsgi

I got an error message telling me:

gcc: erreur : /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-cc1: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

The full output of the command is here. Thank you for help.

You could use dnf to install mod_wsgi, but it won't work the same way as that tutorial. mod_python is no longer distributed in Fedora, but it does look like there's a live fork of it on github, so you might be able to install it from there. Or find a different tutorial.

Install package that contains that file: dnf install /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-cc1
