[mod_python] mptest.py text does not interpret

Hi Reg

Thanx very much for your reply, but unfortunately I had already removed the 
AddType (tried with and without).

When the ScriptAlias directory points to the WebDir (and mptest.py placed in 
that directory) then it shows the text sans interpretation.

With the config pointing to /python, and the file in that directory and the 
URL pointing to /python/mptest.py the server responds with "The server 
encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete 
your request"

Would appreciate ideas on other avenues perhaps.

I had this same problem. Remove the AddType directive that refers to python
from the httpd.conf file. For some reason, mod_python is not implemented the
same way as PHP4,say.


P.S. I never thanked others on the list that lead to this solution. My
apologies and thanks. I was trying to find the reason that I inserted the
AddType statement, but never did. By the time I reached that point, it was
"too late" to thank Ian Clelland <ian at veryfresh.com> and
"Gregory (Grisha) Trubetskoy" <grisha at modpython.org> for their help.
