Description (last modified by jacob)

Was following the documentation for installation with Apache & mod_python. Following the Django best-practices, I started a Django project outside of "where PHP projects live" - i.e., not where Apache serves documents. Little did I know that SELinux was by design preventing Apache access outside of its allowable realm. Spent a few days on this, going down different paths/possibilities, etc. A warning in the documentation (to work with or around SELinux) would greatly help newbies (like me) and allow for a smoother, more enjoyable learning curve to this great product.

I think we've decided not to include too many distro-specific notes in the official docs, so I've put these notes on the Distributions page of the Django Wiki.
