Here are the simple steps needed to create and run an web.py application.

  • Install web.py and flups

  • Create the application as documented

if __name__ == "__main__":
    web.run(urls, globals())

For our example, let it be named app.py, located in /www/app and we need it accessible as http://server/app/app.py.

  • Configure Apache (version 2.2 in this example)
ScriptAlias /app "/www/app/"
<Directory "/www/app/">
        Options +ExecCGI +FollowSymLinks
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
</Directory>

That's it. Your application is accessible via http://server/app/app.py/. Additional URLs handled by the application are added to the end of the URL, for examples http://server/app/app.py/myurl.

  • .htaccess configuration
Options +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .py
DirectoryIndex index.py
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/favicon.ico$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^(/.*)+index.py/
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.py/$1 [PT]
</IfModule>

Here it is assumed that your application is called index.py. The above htaccess checks if some static file/directory exists failing which it routes the data to your index.py. Change the Rewrite Base to a sub-directory if needed.
