5.1.3 PythonTransHandler

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

This handler gives allows for an opportunity to translate the URI into an actual filename, before the server's default rules (Alias directives and the like) are followed.

Where multiple handlers are specified, if any handler in the sequence returns a value other than apache.DECLINED, then execution of all subsequent handlers for this phase are aborted.

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.
