Hi Reg

1) mptest.py is:
from mod_python import apache

def handler(req):
	req.content_type = "text/plain"
	req.write("Hello World!")
	return apache.OK

2) and test.py (called from a form):
#!C:\Program Files\Python22\Lib
import cgi

def main():
	print "Content-type: text/html\n"
	form = cgi.FieldStorage()
	if form.has_key("firstname") and form["firstname"].value != "":
		print "<h1>Hello", form["firstname"].value, "</h1>"
		print "<h1>Error! Please enter first name.</h1>"


1) displays text and 2) tries to download. Only when in webroot. In 
webroot/python it displays the internal error message.

Thanx then

Could you please send a copy of the test program you are using. All my 
started with an invalid test program. My "fixes" kept on making things worse 
worse until I asked the list.
