deploying web.py with nginx and mod_wsgi

It is possible to deploy web.py with nginx using a mod_wsgi similar to the module for Apache.

After compiling and installing nginx with mod_wsgi, you can easily get a web.py app up and running with the following config* (edit the paths and settings with your own):

wsgi_python_executable  /usr/bin/python;

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name www.domain_name.com domain_name.com;
    root /path/to/your/webpy;

    include /etc/nginx/wsgi_vars;
    location / {
        wsgi_pass /path/to/your/webpy/app.py;

*Note: This is a snippet of the relevant information to setup mod_wsgi for your web app and NOT a full config for running nginx.
