I'm trying to deploy a python app to my Ubuntu 12.04.1 VPS running Nginx / uWSGI. I've setup my server following this guide. When I restart uWSGI I get this message:

nickd@my-vps:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/uwsgi restart
[sudo] password for nickd:
* Restarting app server(s) uwsgi
[uWSGI] getting INI configuration from /usr/share/uwsgi/conf/default.ini
[uWSGI] parsing config file /etc/uwsgi/apps-enabled/
open("./"): No such file or directory [core/utils.c line 4700]
!!! UNABLE to load uWSGI plugin: ./ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory !!!
Tue Dec 11 15:18:06 2012 - [WARNING] option "app" is deprecated: use the more advanced "mount" option


    <app mountpoint="/">

My INI config is default.

Any help getting uWSGI to load the python plugin would be appreciated.

You need to have the plugin installed.

sudo apt-get install uwsgi-plugin-python3
