5.1.2 PythonPostReadRequestHandler

Syntax: Python*Handler Syntax
Context: server config, virtual host, directory, htaccess
Override: not None
Module: mod_python.c

This routine is called after the request has been read but before any other phases have been processed. This is useful to make decisions based upon the input header fields.

NOTE: At the time when this phase of the request is being processed, the URI has not been translated into a path name, therefore this directive will never be executed by Apache if specified within <Directory>, <Location>, <File> directives or in an .htaccess file. The only place this can be specified is the main configuration file, and the code for it will execute in the main interpreter.
