5.4.1 PythonEnablePdb

Syntax: PythonEnablePdb {On, Off}
Default: PythonEnablePdb Off
Context: server config, virtual host, directory, htaccess
Override: not None
Module: mod_python.c

When On, mod_python will execute the handler functions within the Python debugger pdb using the pdb.runcall() function.

Because pdb is an interactive tool, start httpd from the command line with the -DONE_PROCESS option when using this directive. As soon as your handler code is entered, you will see a Pdb prompt allowing you to step through the code and examine variables.
