Hi All,

I have am newbie and I seems to be having a problem return a different apache return code. In my httpd.conf file I am using PythonHandler mod_python.publisher. 

In my index.py file.

	req.header_out['Location'] = "http://someurl:8080/

my problem is that this returns:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 30 Nov 2004 01:12:06 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.49 (Fedora)
Location:  "http://someurl:8080/"
Connection: close
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8


I would like to return HTTP/1.1 301.. instead of HTTP/1.1 200 OK. 

For some reason anything that the method return the publisher handler puts it in the body of the request I cannot return a different return code other than the default apache.OK

Could some one please help me with this.
