I have to apologize. I was jumping the gun!! I had to go back to how I did
it:

The first part by: "yum install nginx" was correct however, I
struggled with the wsgi part and ended up with a reverse proxy into
gunicorn. Simply ssh into your IBM i and install that with "pip3 install
gunicorn"

So this is what we do on "IBM i" . It is so easy and it works great !!

.. You can still follow my advice for other platforms

FYI Niels, the info you sent is not just as easy as "yum install nginx"
as
you linked to the uWSGI application server. uwsGI is an alternative to
Gunicorn, and is written in C, so it requires python3-devel, gcc, and
header files installed on your system in order to build and install. It
also has not had the required porting to PASE, so you'll run in to
problems like this:

In file included from core/master.c:1:0:
./uwsgi.h:325:23: fatal error: sys/event.h: No such file or
directory
#include <sys/event.h>
^
and this:

In file included from core/mule.c:9:0:
./uwsgi.h:907:28: fatal error: machine/endian.h: No such file or
directory
#include <machine/endian.h>
^

Meanwhile Gunicorn is pure-Python so it requires no porting, no
compiling,
and just works. uWSGI might be more performant based on some benchmarks
I've seen, but so far I've seen no complaints about Gunicorn
performance.

WSGI is Pythons version of CGI or fastCGI. I will suggest you try
NGINX
on
your IBM i . It is as easy as: yum install nginx

Then read this:

Another trail to follow is to use a python server like gnuicorn
