$ usermod -md /srv/foobar foobar
$ chmod 755 /srv/foobar
$ sudo su - foobar
foobar@local~$ virtualenv --python=python2.7 ~/venv
foobar@local~$ mkdir www
foobar@local~$ mkdir logs
foobar@local~$ touch logs/uwsgi.log
foobar@local~$ touch uwsgi.ini
foobar@local~$ echo "source ~/venv/bin/activate" >> ~/.bashrc
foobar@local~$ source ~/venv/bin/activate
(venv)foobar@local~$ vim uwsgi.ini
[uwsgi]
master = true
processes = 2
socket = /tmp/foobar.sock
chdir = /srv/foobar/www
virtualenv = /srv/foobar/venv
module = app:app
uid = foobar
chown-socket = foobar:nginx
chmod-socket = 660
vacuum = true
die-on-term = true
python-autoreload = 3
py-autoreload = 1
logger = file:/srv/foobar/logs/uwsgi.log
