Models are not registered at the moment when AdminSite.get_urls() runs, only at mod_wsgi environment

I'm using Django 1.1rc1 on Python 2.5.2 + mod_wsgi 1.3.1 + Apache 2.2.8 on a Ubuntu machine. I have never installed python-django package on this machine--this is a clean custom install.

Everything works fine when I run my project via the test server.

But after attaching it to Apache/mod_wsgi, all /admin/appname/modelname/ urls stopped to work. I've inspected the source code of Django, and used logging module around the AdminSite class, and finally found that this problem only occurs when I use mod_wsgi.

All model class registration should be done BEFORE get_urls() method runs, and this is correct with the internal test server, but not with mod_wsgi.

I don't have any idea why this happens, but if this is a bug of Django, it seems very critical. (I hope not...)

For more information, I add some bits of my codes:

# in
from django.contrib import admin
from myproject.myapp.models import MyModel # imported for custom admin-actions

class MyModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):

# in
from django.contrib import admin

class MyModel(models.Model):

from myproject.myapp.admin import *, MyModelAdmin)

I think is also important:

from django.conf.urls.defaults import *
from django.contrib import admin

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    # my custom urls...

    # Uncomment the next line to enable the admin:
    (ur'^admin/', include(,

Your problem is that you should be registering with the admin in your file and then using admin.autodiscover() at the top of your In the future please ask user questions on either the django-users mailing list or the #django IRC channel on freenode.

Thanks, but I've already questioned on the IRC and nobody responded, and stackoverflow also didn't help me. :)

However, I have still another question (well, should it go to "user"-things?) -- autodiscover() is the only way that is recommended as the official option? And is this a strange behaviour or not?
