Greetings, I'm having a little problem with a combination of my browser and apache while trying to use mod_python. I'm running Debian stable, Apache 1.3, and mod_python 2.7. I'm trying to complete the initial setup test in the mod_python documentation, and I've followed those instructions. When I would try to browse to http://myhost/mptest.py my browser wants to download the file. Initially I thought that mod_python just wasn't working, but upon downloading the file and viewing it contains: Hello World!. Mod_python is parsing and outputting correctly. So I think it must be a mime-type issue. I found the entry for in /etc/apache/mime.types to contain: text/x-python .py I worked around the problem by changing said line to: text/html .py And now the page is displayed correctly, in the browser, as Hello World! I know this can't be the right solution. Can anyone tell me where my configuration is wrong? This has proven to be a difficult problem for me to google. Thanks.
