Has anyone had success getting mod_python to run on Apache on Win2K?
I'm writing up instructions on how to do this and need your help. When
completed, the instructions at the mod_python website and on
comp.lang.python crediting all those who contributed.
Here's what I've done so far - and where I get stuck:
1. I made default installations of the latest versions:
  - apache_2.0.47-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi
  - mod_python-3.0.3.win32.exe
2. I followed the installation/configuration instructions provided at
the end of the mod_python-3.0.3.win32.exe installation.
3. When I created and ran the following script shown at, my
browser displays the full text of the script instead of running the
"from mod_python import apache

def handler(req):
    req.write("Hello World!")
    return apache.OK"

4. I've read Troubleshooting and FAQ, triple-checked my http.conf
file, and still can't get it to work.
