Give the OS version, I presume this is an Intel system?

What do you get when you run:

    file /Users/apple/.virtualenvs/djangodev/lib/python3.8/site-packages/mod_wsgi/server/mod_wsgi-py38.cpython-38-darwin.so

and:

    file /usr/sbin/httpd

and:

    which apxs

and:

    apxs -q BINDIR

Who's Python distribution are you using? It is actually the Python distribution that looks to be the problem. Doesn't look like it has been configured correctly when built such that it can be used in embedded systems. Haven't see the problem for many many years and when did was with a packaging system for MacOS apps that as far as I know doesn't exist anymore.

Hi,

I am not sure about who's python distribution i am using. But i am using Python(3.8.9) and i using a virtual environment. So could you please guide me how should i proceed further.

All I can tell you is that the Python distribution is broken, or it could actually be the virtual environment itself.

Get down the newest Python version you can that supports that macOS version from the Python Software Foundation. Install and use that instead.


You will need to create a new Python virtual environment against the newer Python version and use it.

Use the "python -m venv" command to create the virtual environment rather than a separate tool.

Thanks.

You don't need to uninstall python3. It looks like it even be that supplied by the operating system.

Just install the Python Software Foundation version and then for example run Python as "python3.10", rather than "python3" when creating the virtual environment.
