Configure Mogan API with uWSGI

Configure Mogan API with uWSGI

The recommended way to deploy Mogan is have a web server such as Apache or nginx to handle http requests and proxy these requests to Mogan WSGI app running in uWSGI. Mogan comes with some configuration templates on how to deploy the api service with Apache and uWSGI.


The mogan/api/app.wsgi file contains a WSGI application of Mogan API service. This file is installed with Mogan application code.


The mogan/etc/apache-mogan.template file contains a copy of Apache configuration file for Mogan API used by devstack.


The mogan/etc/mogan-uwsgi.ini.sample file is a sample configuration file for uWSGI server. Update the file to match your system configuration.

Steps to use these sample configuration files:

  1. Enable mod_proxy_uwsgi module
  • On Ubuntu install required uwsgi package sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-proxy-uwsgi; enable using sudo a2enmod proxy, sudo a2enmod proxy_uwsgi.
  • On Fedora the required package is mod_proxy_uwsgi; enable by creating a file /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/11-proxy_uwsgi.conf containing LoadModule proxy_uwsgi_module modules/
  1. On deb-based systems copy or symlink the file apache-mogan.template to /etc/apache2/sites-available/mogan.conf. For rpm-based systems the file should go into /etc/httpd/conf.d/mogan.conf. uWSGI need a socket file to connect between apache proxy and uWSGI web server, it usually is under /var/run/uwsgi, but /var/run will be empty on after system reboot, so we can use systemd-temptiles to automatically create a socket dir:

    $ sudo mkdir -p /etc/tmpfiles.d/
    $ echo "d /var/run/uwsgi 0755 <STACK_USER> root" | sudo tee /etc/tmpfiles.d/uwsgi.conf
    $ sudo systemd-tmpfiles --create /etc/tmpfiles.d/uwsgi.conf
  2. Enable Mogan site. On deb-based systems:

    $ a2ensite mogan
    $ service apache2 reload

    On rpm-based systems:

    $ service httpd reload
  3. Copy mogan/etc/mogan-uwsgi.ini.sample to /etc/mogan/mogan-uwsgi.ini.

  4. Start Mogan api using uWSGI:

    $ sudo pip install uwsgi
    $ uwsgi --ini /etc/mogan/mogan-uwsgi.ini
