[mod_python] HELP needed for Mod_python & Apache on a Win XP machine

My environment is as follows:


Windows XP Prof 2002 sp2

> Python 2.4.3

> Apache 2.2.8

> mod_python 3.3.1


I have added the following lines to the Apache httpd.conf file:


LoadFile "C:/Python24/Python24.dll"

LoadModule python_module modules/mod_python.so



Servername is the following:


ServerName localhost:80



Under the "DocumentRoot" section of the Apache httpd.conf file, I changed
the following:



      Options FollowSymLinks

      AllowOverride None

      Order deny,allow

      Deny from all





<Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/htdocs/">

      AddHandler mod_python .py

      PythonHandler hello

      PythonDebug On


      Options FollowSymLinks

      AllowOverride None

      Order deny,allow

      Deny from all



The rest of the Apache httpd.conf file is the same as was when Apache 2.2.8
was installed


I have added the following python module to the Apache2.2/htdocs directory:


>From mod_python import apache


Def handler(req):

      req.content_type = 'text/plain'

      req.write("Hello World!")

      return apache.OK



When I enter the request http://localhost/ into my browser(IE) I receive "It
Works" from the index.html file contained in the Apache2.2/htdocs
directory....This is good.


When I enter the request http://localhost/hello.py into my browser(IE) I
receive the following:


Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable
to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, admin at localhost and inform them of
the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have
caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.


The message I get in the server error log is as follows:


ImportError: No module named mod_python.apache

[Tue Mar 18 12:11:04 2008] [error] make_obcallback: Python path being used
"['C:\\\\Python24\\\\python24.zip', '.\\\\DLLs', '.\\\\lib',
'.\\\\lib\\\\plat-win', '.\\\\lib\\\\lib-tk', 'C:\\\\Program Files\\\\Apache
Software Foundation\\\\Apache2.2\\\\bin']".

[Tue Mar 18 12:11:04 2008] [error] get_interpreter: no interpreter callback

[Tue Mar 18 12:11:04 2008] [error] [client] python_handler: Can't
get/create interpreter



Can someone please help me with this issue.  I have no other version of
python installed on my pc.  I have installed and re-installed both Apache
and Mod_python to no success.   Can anyone please shed some light on what
the problem is???  It shouldn't be this hard!!!
