Please use reply-all when responding, thus keeping the conversation on
the mod_python mailing list.

As to your problem, if you cannot ascertain from that document which
bits referred to how to configure Apache, then you need to perhaps
learn more about how to configure Apache and the language it uses to
refer to its directives and where to put them. On that I can only
suggest you go to the Apache documentation and start reading. Some
starting points are:


Also refer to the mod_python documentation to learn about its own
specific configuration directives:


Beyond that we can't really help since you haven't actually included
in your email what snippet of Apache configuration you think you are
using to enable mod_python use in the first place. Thus, cannot say
how it is wrong, or how it is conflicting with existing CGI
configuration in your setup.

The only thing we can tell you as we already have, is that error would
generally arise when your script is run as a CGI program and not
through mod_python. This is because the _apache module is a special
module not available from command line Python and is only available
when code is running inside of mod_python. That the module cannot be
found indicates the code isn't running under mod_python.

Oh, and please do not go sending your complete Apache configuration,
just those bits which would be relevant, such as the mod_python and
CGI sections.
