Hi !

When I used this model (see below),  I not got error: every py filename
accepted, but only mptest.py started:

    LoadModule python_module modules/mod_python.so

    <Directory c:/web/apache22/htdocs/>
      AddHandler python-program .py
      PythonHandler mptest
      PythonDebug On


    from mod_python import apache

    def handler(req):
          req.content_type = 'text/html'
          req.write('Handler: mptest.py<br>')
          req.write('Actual (URL defined) filename: '+req.filename)
          req.write('<br>Some random number: ')
          import random
          return apache.OK

The URL I write:


The result is:

    Handler: mptest.py
    Actual (URL defined) filename: C:/web/apache22/htdocs/index_ssss.py
    Some random number: 594

The index_ssss does not exists, but the handler catched it, and handle
the request with mptest.py.

So I don't get 404 error, but this is good for me: I can handle every
problem in one script !

Thanks for your help:
