What do you mean 'seems to run fine and then I get a 404 error'? Do
you mean your desired page appears sometimes but then on other
attempts you get a 404, or do you mean something else?

But what does the part of your Apache configuration you use to
configure mod_python say? Are you doing it in the main Apache
configuration or are you using a .htaccess file?

Which is a mod_python.publisher handler not an mptest.py style basic
handler as described in documentation. If you are using publisher
style configuration with a basic handler it isn't likely to work.

Maybe you should go back to square one and follow the following
instructions, instead of what you have been doing now as it may help
you see what you are doing wrong.
