Hello, Graham,

The problem is that adding the

   PythonPath "sys.path +

line in httpd.conf doesn't help - I still get the

  [Mon Jun 26 15:56:04 2006] [error] [client] python_handler:
  make_obcallback returned no obCallBack!

in Apache's error.log file. But when I restore the
HKCU\Software\Python\PythonCore\2.4\PythonPath Registry hive and restart
Apache, everything works OK.

>extra directories into the Python module search path, use the
>PythonPath directive as documented in the mod_python documentation.
