Deploying and tuning Django

I used shared hosting for my Django-based Encyclopedia of Programming Languages (Russian version), but realized, that I need dedicated server for more performance and stability. For now, I chose cheap server with 1,8 GHz CPU and 512 Mb RAM, with CentOS 5 installed.

In this article I’ll share my experience for installing on this server Django with Apache mod_python, with memcached caching and lighttpd for serving static files.
