For me, HOME=/home/roberto

I have a modified apache2ctl in $HOME/apache2/bin, which starts it like

case $ARGV in
    $HTTPD -d $HOME/apache2 -f $HOME/apache2/conf/apache2.conf -k $ARGV

In $HOME/public_html/.htaccess, I have:

<IfModule mod_python.c>
# Enable mod_python Python Server Pages
  AddHandler mod_python .psp .psp_
  PythonHandler mod_python.psp
  PythonDebug On

I use the IfModule directive so that access to my home directory via
~roberto doesn't cause the real Aapche server on port 80 to barf since I
don't have mod_python enabled in it at all.  The one I am starting from
within $HOME is on port 8080.
