Not that it will help, but what version of mod_python are you using?

Can you also give the bit of the Apache configuration which triggers
use of Quioxite. Ie., PythonHandler etc.

Anyway, I suspect that you might be hitting some of the known issues with
the module importer. You can read about them at:


Would need to investigate how, if it does, Quioxite uses the mod_python
module importer.

Are you able to describe the problems and/or errors that may be arising
further? Do you you use the mod_python apache.import_module() function
