Subject: Newbie - problem running mptest.py


I am new to mod_python.

This DSO module was included in Redhat RHEL 3, but I do not seem to be able
to get this working with the simple example test program.  See questions


Redhat Linux RHEL 3

Apache 2.0.46

Mod_python 3.0.3


RHEL 3 configuration:


-          in this file it includes external configuration files

-          For mod_python, it httpd.conf includes

-          In python.conf, these directives were added:


LoadModule python_module modules/mod_python.so

<Directory  /<DocumentRoot path>/Python>

    AddHandler python-program .py

    PythonHandler mptest

    PythonDebug On



Example file:


from mod_python import apache


def handler(req):

    req.write("Hello World!")

    return apache.OK


URL reference:




1)    the content of mptest.py was displayed, and not executed.

2)    Error message in error.log for apache

[Tue Feb 28 14:24:35 2006] [error] make_obcallback: could not import

Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>

Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>

Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]

'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

ImportError: No module named mod_python.apache



1)    what did I do wrong?

2)    How to you use -v for traceback

3)    Any other suggestion
