I've already noted the '/' and I tried both with PythonOption
ApplicationPath /script/cgi/cgi-mpy and directly  c.path =
But without success.
Only work with path=''.

do you work on windows? I suppose that in windows Session doesn't work
without removing this problem. Any people has a configuration working in

Looks like the path is not correct (extra \)
try adding the following line to your httpd.config  addHandler entry:

PythonOption ApplicationPath /script/cgi/cgi-mpy

I have just had the same problem but have not yet discovered where the extra
comes from ( it is in _req.hlist.directory in session.py)
