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:

dn = os.path.dirname
PROJECT_ROOT = os.path.abspath( dn(dn(__file__)) )
DJANGO_PROJECT_ROOT = os.path.join(PROJECT_ROOT, 'apps')

sys.path.append( DJANGO_PROJECT_ROOT )
sys.path.append( "/var/www/debianworld_ru/apps/apps" )
