    11== Getting Django to work with Apache 1.3 and FCGI on Mac OS X ==
    22
    3 On OS X, using django with mod_python requires you to install Apache2, which involves quite a bit of extra effort to get it right. So for most of us Mac users, since Apache 1.3 is already installed, this is not an option. At the same time, the information contained here
     3If you want to use django with mod_python on OS X, you need to install Apache2 first. This involves quite a bit of extra effort and can be difficult to get right. But since Apache 1.3 comes already installed on all OS X systems, for most Mac users, this won't be the best option. The alternative to mod_python and Apache2 is to use FCGI with Apache 1.3, but with the information provided here
    44[http://hugo.muensterland.org/2005/08/03/django-apache-and-fcgi/ Django, Apache and FCGI] and here
    5 [https://simon.bofh.ms/cgi-bin/trac-django-projects.cgi/wiki/DjangoFcgi django projects] is a bit incomplete from a Mac users perspective.
