[mod_python] Problem with connection to Oracle via Apache/mod_python/cx_Oracle

Hello all. I am having a heck of time getting a connection to a remote
Oracle server from web application.
>From my lInux prompt I am able to connect to the database with cx_Oracle
with no probelm. However, when similar code is executed
throught the web app (apache+mod_python+cx_Oracle) I keep getting
DatabaseError: ORA-12541: TNS:no listener.

Does this has anything to do with the permissions of the apache process
on Oracle files? I have been able to set and read LD_LIBRARY_PATH,
ORACLE_HOME and TNS_ADMIN within the web app code. As far as I know, my
TNS_NAMES file is the same one used by root and web users. Is a such
good assumption?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
