Django deployment with apache server error


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by hiwa

I have a django application deployed on apache server.
following is os and apache details:

Server Version: Apache/2.4.41 (Ubuntu) OpenSSL/1.1.1f mod_wsgi/4.6.8 Python/3.8

when restarting apache and trying to access website i have this error:

 /var/www/backend/venv2/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pandas/ UserWarning: NumPy was imported from a Python sub-interpreter but NumPy does not properly support sub-interpreters. This will likely work for most users but might cause hard to track down issues or subtle bugs. A common user of the rare sub-interpreter feature is wsgi which also allows single-interpreter mode.

 [wsgi:error] Improvements in the case of bugs are welcome, but is not on the NumPy roadmap, and full support may require significant effort to achieve.

raise ImproperlyConfigured("The SECRET_KEY setting must not be empty.")

[wsgi:error] django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: The SECRET_KEY setting must not be empty.

as you can see first it gives me a warning about numpy and after it, it gives me error about SECRET_KEY which supposed to read it from environment variables.

SECRET_KEY = os.environ.get('DJANGO_SECRET_KEY')

for this issue i read couple of texts and other stackoverflow questions and i even tried following directive inside my apache config file.

WSGIApplicationGroup %{GLOBAL}

but still nothing.
