Incomplete/incorrect documentation about using wsgi with Apache when project using virtualenv

Reported by: Zahar Shimanchik Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: 1.9
Severity: Normal Keywords: wsgi, virtualenv, apache, documentation, modwsgi

I've tryied to setup apache VirtualHost for my project with virtualenv, using mod_wsgi in daemon mode. Project uses python2, but I think it doesn't matter.
However following documentation I've tryied to use

WSGIDaemonProcess python-path=/path/to/

But this is not enough. besides python-path there must be set python-home with path to virtualenv directory. here is example of my working configuration:

<VirtualHost site1:80>
 ServerName site1

 WSGIDaemonProcess site1 python-path=/home/neuron/projects/django_zs_testprj/zs_testprj:/home/neuron/projects/django_zs_testprj/env/lib/python2.7/site-packages python-home=/home/neuron/projects/django_zs_testprj/env
 WSGIProcessGroup site1
 WSGIScriptAlias / /home/neuron/projects/django_zs_testprj/zs_testprj/zs_testprj/

 <Directory /home/neuron/projects/django_zs_testprj/zs_testprj/zs_testprj>
   Require all granted

Archlinux, Python 2.7.11, Apache/2.4.18, mod_wsgi2 4.4.22-1

without using python-home I've got error:

note that I haven't installed django outside my virtualenv:

    [neuron@eighteenth ~]$ python2 -c "import sys; print sys.path"
    ['', '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pyre-0.8_pathos-py2.7.egg', '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pox-0.2.2-py2.7.egg', '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dill-0.2.4-py2.7.egg', '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pp-1.5.7_pathos-py2.7.egg', '/usr/lib/', '/usr/lib/python2.7', '/usr/lib/python2.7/plat-linux2', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-tk', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-old', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload', '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages', '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0']

I have several sites similarly installed and never had to use python-home. We cannot change the documentation without having a deeper understanding of what your problem was.
