Running multiple django sites with mod_wsgi + apache

Last Modified: 2015-06-29
I'm currently running 50+ Django installations with mod wsgi and noticing that apache isn't dropping memory (so it just keeps holding more and more, and then the sites grind to a halt as the swap disk fills). I also host some PHP sites on these servers.

Current wsgi config looks like this:

WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/vhosts/glenlivet/tar/src/core/wsgi.py
WSGIDaemonProcess tar.sljol.info python-path=/var/www/vhosts/glenlivet/tar/src:/var/www/vhosts/.virtualenvs/glenlivet/lib/python2.7/site-packages
<Location />
WSGIProcessGroup tar.sljol.info

I'm no expert, on this type of configuration, can anyone advise how best to setup each of the vhosts?
