To be specific, you are best to run:

  apachectl stop
  apachectl start

Do not simply use 'restart' as on some versions of OS on some platforms,
eg. Mac OS X, Apache is unable to properly unload the mod_python.so
from the running Apache parent process and reload it. As a consequence
you end up with newer Python code files being used by child Apache
processes when they are started anew, but they will still have the older
mod_python.so in memory.
