Judging by your earlier posts, you are not reading the appropriate documentation. There is a world of difference between mod_python 2.7 and 3.1. For example, in 2.7 --with-python takes a source directory as its argument, but 3.1 takes the location of the python binary you want to use: http://www.modpython.org/live/mod_python-2.7.8/doc-html/inst-configure.html Things will be much easier, however, if you upgrade your platform and use recent versions of python, mod_python and apache.
