[Solved] Docker+uWSGI+Flask Error: ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘flask‘

Background

The docker + nginx + uwsgi + flask deployment environment has always been able to run well before. This time, the Python version of the basic image was upgraded from the original 3.6 to 3.8 , and the title was wrong.

docker + nginx + uwsgi + flask deployment can refer to this article

Problem analysis

Let’s take a look at the start log of docker:

Starting nginx: nginx.,

It can be seen from this that an error is reported when quoting flash .

What causes this problem?

If the program does not find the python Library (flash) when running, it will report an error.

Here, we don’t care why he didn’t find it. Since he didn’t find it, we’ll take the initiative to tell him where to find it.

Solution

Modify uwsgi. Ini , and set the value of Python path to /usr/local/lib/Python 3.8/site packages/.

The content of the modified uwsgi. Ini file is:

[uwsgi]
chdir = /code
socket = :5000
pythonpath = /usr/local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/
wsgi-file = run.py
callable = app
chmod-socket = 666
plugins = python3
buffer-size = 65535
processes = 4
threads = 2

All right, problem solved.
