I am having a problem while installing mod_wsgi 2.6 which supports Python 2.5 but I have Python 2.6 as the default in Ubuntu.

Can you please tell me whether I have to find a mod_wsgi version supporting Python 2.6 or do I have to install Python 2.5 and set the path?

You could compile from source. See:

Use the '--with-python' option to 'configure' script for mod_wsgi to make it use non default Python installation.

Also see other documentation on mod_wsgi site as further steps may be required if that alternate Python installed in non standard location.
