I can't get the python interpreter running through apache. Apache seems to
totally ignore the existance of mod_python. First i started by following
the instructions found at:
The result was the same as it is now after poking around in the
Directory-section I have created:

Index of /mptest

 Name                    Last modified      Size  Description Parent
Directory                             -
 mptest.py               31-Mar-2004 09:56   95

Apache/2.0.49 (Unix) mod_python/3.1.3 Python/2.3.2 Server at
Port 80

As you see it just lists the files in the directory :(

I have compiled apache 2.0.49 (newest right now), and mod_python 3.1.3
(also the newest).
Currently my alterations to the httpd.conf file (which by the way are the
only alterations I have made) are:

In the Global Environment section:
LoadModule python_module /usr/modules/mod_python.so

In the Main Server Configuration:
Alias /mptest/ /usr/htdocs/test/

<Directory /mptest>
    AllowOverride FileInfo
    AddHandler python-program .py
    PythonHandler mptest
    PythonDebug On

jsg-lap:/usr/htdocs/test# cat mptest.py
from mod_python import apache

def handler(req):
  req.write("Hello World!")
  return apache.OK

Here is the output of apache when entering the directory
jsg-lap:/usr/logs# cat access_log - - [31/Mar/2004:14:20:58 +0200] "GET /mptest/ HTTP/1.1" 200 691 - - [31/Mar/2004:14:20:58 +0200] "GET /icons/blank.gif HTTP/1.1"
