This is what occurs when I'm trying to make a new django application in the control panel. "There was an error creating the app with the custom script."

Could anyone please clarify why this could be occurring?, I'm setting up an application exactly like I have done many times before.

thank you ryans. I'm not sure what was causing this but for some reason it stopped and I was able to add applications again.

Quite possibly you're getting close to the per-user thread limit. Try this command to see how many threads you're running:

ps -u $USER -m | wc -l

If you're approaching 300, you might want to think about combining some of your django applications under a single mod_wsgi instance, or running some under separate SSH users to split them up.

I guess that was it, I removed some of my applications that were not being used before I tested again, I'm at 202 now. Very good to know about this command. Many thanks :)

I have no Django/Python apps running on my server, but I'm still getting this error while trying to create a new one.

There could be many reasons for this error. Please open a support ticket and we can check the application installer logs to determine the problem.
