Publisher expects you to point to a function *within* the module:


Here's a very easy way to test Publisher:

<Directory /var/www/documentroot>
    AddHandler python-program .py
    PythonHandler mod_python.publisher
    PythonDebug On

Create test.py:

def hello(req):
     x = "Hello, world!"
     return x

Restart apache (if you modified httpd.conf), point your browser to:


Furthermore, if you add the directive:

  Options MultiViews

to your directory section, you should be able to hide the extension 
(assuming there is no conflict with another test.* file):
