I am trying to check different things. When I tried manually compile
apache.py in \lib\mod_python dirctory I got this error:

C:\Dev\Python\Lib\mod_python>python apache.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "apache.py", line 55, in ?
    import _apache
ImportError: No module named _apache

I got no _apache.py:

              11 File(s)         92,498 bytes

I guess this error occures too when tries to execute 'PythonHandler mptest'
and mptest.py fails to import apache.py module.

Your apache is 1.3.22 and the dll is for 1.3.20. Maybe that is the problem?

That is how it should be read. \python\lib\mod_python should contain the
files with no subdirectories in it.
