My setup is Windows 10, Python 3.7, Apache 2.4/mod_wsgi. When I add this enctype="multipart/form-data" in my form (just by adding this attribute, only -- no files are attached to the form) I get this error when submitting:

Django Version: 1.8.5
Exception Type: RuntimeError
Exception Value: generator raised StopIteration
Exception Location: c:\users\holistic\envs\vitadmin\lib\site-packages\django\http\multipartparser.py in read, line 337
Python Executable: C:\Apache24\bin\httpd.exe
Python Version: 3.7.3

My Django code is this:

elif request.method == "POST":
    rid = request.POST.get("recipe", "")
    title = request.POST.get("title")
    content = request.POST.get("content")
    tag_names = request.POST.getlist("tags")
    image = request.FILES.get("image")
    if rid:
        recipe = get_object_or_404(FoodRecipe, pk=rid)
    else:
        recipe = FoodRecipe.objects.create(title=title)
    recipe.content = content
    recipe.title = title
    if image:
        recipe.featured = image
    for tn in tag_names:
        tag, cr = Tag.objects.get_or_create(
            name=tn
        )
        recipe.tags.add(tag)
    recipe.save()

And this is full traceback:

Any ideas what is going wrong?

PS: Same django application worked fine in Linux/Nginx/Gunicorn/Python2.7 setup. So, I guess it must some misconfiguration between Django/Python/Apache.

Your Django is very old and you need to update. This is a Python 3.7 compatibility problem that the Django devs already fixed four years ago, back when it was just a PendingDeprecationWarning on Python 3.5.

In fact, you are on the very last Django version that doesn't have the fix. Even 1.8.6 has the fix.
