I'm trying to run this command on Ubuntu:

echo "LoadModule wsgi_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_wsgi.so" > /etc/apache2/mods-available/wsgi.load

I get a permission issue, normally this can be resolved with added the sudo command, however this still gives a permission issues on the /etc/apache2/mods-available/wsgi.load.

How do I add sudo to both parts?

You don't; you add sudo to the whole thing.

sudo sh -c "echo ... > ..."
