My website had been stable and running without error but I'd been running on 2.3.3, 2.0.52 and 3.1.3; since everything was behind the times I decided to finally reinstall; I made the mistake of doing it on the drive that everything was being served off of instead of using my backup drive. :-( I installed python 2.4 and it seems to work when I call it from the shell. I did not do a frameworkInstall, which seems to be recommended by some people. I am too much of a unix novice to understand what the implications of frameworkInstall are. I installed apache and mod_python as follows: cd ~/Desktop/httpd-2.0.53 ./configure --enable-so --with-mpm=worker make sudo make install cd ~/Desktop/mod_python-3.1.4 ./configure --with apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-python=/usr/local/bin/python2.4 make sudo make install I restored my old httpd.conf file and my website files. My index.html file is straight html which links to .py files. As soon as I try to access any of the .py stuff I now get an internal server error message and the server log shows this: [Tue Feb 15 16:25:25 2005] [notice] mod_python: Creating 32 session mutexes based on 6 max processes and 25 max threads. [Tue Feb 15 16:25:25 2005] [notice] Apache configured -- resuming normal operations [Tue Feb 15 16:25:36 2005] [error] make_obcallback: could not import mod_python.apache.\n Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/mod_python/apache.py", line 22, in ? import time ImportError: Failure linking new module: : dyld: /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd Undefined symbols: /usr/local/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/time.so undefined reference to _PyArg_Parse expected to be defined in the executable /usr/local/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/time.so undefined reference to _PyArg_ParseTuple expected to be defined in the executable /usr/local/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/time.so undefined reference to _PyDict_GetItemString expected to be defined in the executable /usr/local/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/time.so un <--what happened here?? [Tue Feb 15 16:25:36 2005] [error] make_obcallback: could not import mod_python.apache. for what its worth I can access various parts of the time module when I run Python2.4 from the shell. Going back through the the mailing list I saw that Graham Dumpleton (back on Dec 23) suggested the output from this might be useful; what I get is different from what he saw but I'm not sure what to make of my result: jraines-Computer:~/Desktop/Website jrraines$ otool otool -L /usr/local/apache2/modules/mod_python.so otool: can't open file: otool (No such file or directory) /usr/local/apache2/modules/mod_python.so: /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 71.1.1) jraines-Computer:~/Desktop/Website jrraines$ ls /usr/local/apache2/modules httpd.exp mod_python.so My problem seemed like it might be similar to a thread titled Weird ob_callback problems at the end of Jan. I tried the suggestions Grisha made:Try defining DYLD_FORCE_FLAT_NAMESPACE=1 environment variable before launching httpd. That didn't help either.
