Per the 3.0 documentation I have setup up apache 2.0.48 per chapter 6.1.1. 
Documentation as follows:

To use the handler, you need the following lines in your configuration 
	<Directory /some/path}
 		SetHandler python-program
  		PythonHandler mod_python.publisher
 This handler allows access to functions and variables within a module via 
URL's. For example, if you have the following module, called hello.py: 

	""" Publisher example """

	def say(req, what="NOTHING"):
 		return "I am saying %s" % what

A URL http://www.mysite.com/hello.py/say would return "I am saying NOTHING". A 
URL http://www.mysite.com/hello.py/say?what=hello would return "I am saying 

When I access my server I get the following error:

Mod_python error: "PythonHandler mod_python.publisher"

Traceback (most recent call last):
