Simon, Simon, Simon, where were you last week? I could have read the answer to your question, and avoided having to post my question earlier this week. It's pretty easy. Do it like this: <Directory "/var/www/ae.russnelson.com"> SetHandler python-program PythonHandler publish </Directory> The SetHandler says that everything should be handled by the python-program. The PythonHandler says that the name of the script is publish.py. Here's a simple publish.py. I'll be publishing a more complicated example later once I finish porting my blogging code over to mod_python. It's currently stand-alone code that writes static HTML pages. The astute observer will notice the constant "if 1" whose unreachable clause calls page(). That code returns an HTML document given the pathname that the user handed in. Note that you'll never get the null string, but instead 'index.html' or as configured elsewhere. #!/usr/bin/env python from mod_python import apache import sys, os, re, string homedir = "/var/www/ae.russnelson.com/" def handler(req): if 1: req.content_type = "text/plain" req.send_http_header() req.write("Hello World!\n") req.write('uri:'+req.uri+'\n') req.write('filename:'+req.filename+'\n') req.write('path_info:'+req.path_info+'\n') if req.args: req.write('args:'+req.args+'\n') else: req.content_type = "text/html" req.send_http_header() req.write(page(req.filename[len(homedir):])) return apache.OK -- --My blog is at angry-economist.russnelson.com | Free markets express in the Crynwr sells support for free software | PGPok | practical world our belief 521 Pleasant Valley Rd. | +1 315 268 1925 voice | that there is that of God Potsdam, NY 13676-3213 | +1 315 268 9201 FAX | in all people. -Chris V.
