I try to install django project on Ubuntu with Apache.

Instructions can be found in article:
http://debianworld.ru/articles/ustanovka-i-nastrojka-apache-mod_wsgi-django-mysql-v-debian-ubuntu/
Sorry for russian description, but commands are onenglish so I think this article can be useful.

I am getting an error:
