This means the Module didn't load. You can it the module is loaded or not
with a simple test by telneting to your web server and sending "HEAD /
HTML/1.0" and look for the server to have the mod_python and Python
version in the header. If you don't see it, the module didn't load.
Should look something like this:

$ telnet localhost 80
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

HTTP/1.1 302 Found
