I'm working on a mod_wsgi script.. at the beginning is:
But I've noticed, that every time I update the script the sys.path var keeps growing with duplicates of this extension:
['/usr/lib64/python25.zip' '/usr/lib64/python2.5' '/usr/lib64/python2.5/plat-linux2' '/usr/lib64/python2.5/lib-tk' '/usr/lib64/python2.5/lib-dynload' '/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages' '/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/Numeric' '/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/gtk-2.0' '/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/scim-0.1' '/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages' '/media/server/www/webroot' '/media/server/www/webroot' '/media/server/www/webroot' '/media/server/www/webroot']
It resets every time I restart apache.. is there any way to make sure this doesn't happen? I want the module path to be loaded only once..
No need to worry about checking or using abspath yourself. Use the â€˜siteâ€™ module's built-in addsitedir function. It will take care of these issues and others (eg. pth files) automatically:
import site site.addsitedir('/media/server/www/webroot/')
(This function is only documented in Python 2.6, but it has pretty much always existed.)
