We are on a server with CENTOS 7.2 x86_64 with WHM 60.0 (build 17). For a project that we have, we want to use Python3.5. For the installation, we decided to use the ius.io/ repos to do so and we encountered no problems with that.

However we also need the relevant mod_wsgi, and the one provided by these repos requires httpd-mmn = 20120211x8664, which cannot be installed since in
/etc/yum.conf, apache related packages are marked to be excluded from yum operations (httpd*).

In the docs it is mentioned:

"cPanel & WHM does not require that you use EasyApache, but it provides an easy and convenient method to modify your web server."

So, two questions basically:

1. Is it possible to simply use the mod_wsgi provided by the aforementioned repos, without using EasyApache?

2. Can someone in general, bypass EasyApache altogether and install mods for Apache the traditional yum way, without fear of breaking things (granted that the package is compatible with the OS and all)?

While we don't require you to use EA, it's by far a lot easier to get it up and running than using upstream packages.

We've gotten mod_wsgi implemented in EA4 under the Experimental repository, as we haven't gotten full UI support in for it yet.

If you'd like more information, let me know, I'll be more than happy to help you out.
