I mean mod_python.publisher. :P > I don't know what causes this behaviour.

FWIW, mod_php ignores the URL arguments: Array ( [name] => NAME_TWO ) This seems more appropriate. A user shouldn't be allowed to mess with POST data so easily. If this gets fixed (assuming it's a bug), you can still use req.unparsed_uri and do your own parsing. For example, use publisher and create foo.py with this function: def test(req): return req.unparsed_uri Then view the results at: http://localhost/foo.py/test?name=something Extract whatever you want from the resulting string.
