Deploying a Django/Pinax site on the following stack: Linux Debian Lenny Apache mod_wsgi PostgreSQL.
This is the config you want to use if you don't know what you want to use. You don't need to make any choices, you don't have to do any research, and you don't even need to read the docs if you don't want to. And as an added bonus, I show how to wget a vm image to deploy into with network ports exposed. It is very much like working with a hosting provider like Slice Host, and it makes a great framework for testing server installs.
