To get mod_wsgi working with python26 on RHEL 5,
yum install python26-mod-python

Then in httpd.conf, instead of
LoadModule wsgi_module modules/mod_wsgi.so

use
LoadModule wsgi_module modules/python26-mod_wsgi.so

elsewhere in httpd.conf, you van have:
WSGIScriptAlias /projbase /var/lib/django/projbase.wsgi

with /var/lib/django/projbase.wsgi

#/var/lib/django/projbase.wsgi

import os
import sys

sys.path = ['/var/www/', '/usr/lib64/python2.6'] + sys.path
from django.core.handlers.wsgi import WSGIHandler

os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = 'pytest.settings'
application = WSGIHandler()
