I am trying to publish my site on an Amazon's EC2 Instance, and I keep getting a 500 error. I really dunno why.

There might be a few packages of the site-packages missing from your virtualenv , when wsgi.py is executed.

This issue can be fixed by modifying the sys.path in your path/project/project/wsgi.py file.

Just append the project dir along with your virtualenv site-packages to the sys.path List.
