I would suggest you use mod_python 3.2.5b (soon to be official 3.2  
hopefully). It is available from:


Reason is that 3.1.4 and earlier versions of mod_python can have  
on Mac OS X if you use the version of Python supplied by Apple.  
Patches are
available for 3.1.4, but you might simpler be better of using  the  
newer version.

Some patches for 3.1.4 which incorporate the Mac OS X specific patch  
can be
found at:


If you try your current installed version as is first, you'll know  
you have hit this
Mac OS X particular problem if Apache crashes on startup or restart.
