You can serve an Aspen website using the mod_wsgi extension module for Apache via the aspen.mod_wsgi script. Since the same Aspen website can be served by the main aspen program as by mod_wsgi, this gives you a compelling development/deployment scenario.
To use mod_wsgi with Aspen, add the following two directives to your httpd.conf:
WSGIScriptAlias / "\path\to\aspen.mod_wsgi" SetEnv aspen.root "\path\to\website-root"
