Hello dear.

I am really neubie with python, so sorry for the questios if it is very 

I have searched at the list, google, etc, and I can't to get an answer 
to my issue.

I have apache 2.0.x running at my server, and python 2.3.4 and python 
2.4.x. Python 2.3 is the default and I can't to upgrade because use yum 
and I want to avoid inconcistenteces  at my server in future updates. 
But some applications need python 2.4, and then I call directly with 
"python2.4" because it is at the path. Python 2.3 is simple "python".

My question is: Can I use two mod_python (each one compiled under 
correct python version) and loaded in apache as two differente modules? 
For instance mod_python.so and mod_python2.so. I presume it is not possible.

Can you give me some light to this issue?

Thank you very much.
