Running mod_python on Apache on Windows

Running mod_python on Apache on Windows. Just keeping the link in case I need it later myself. ;-)

Bah, that would have been really useful last week. I ended up figuring it out for myself - luckily it's not too tricky an installation. I got caught out by the fact that mod_python doesn't work with Python 2.3, so I had to point it at my 2.2 install instead.

All very well to say "install mod_python", but if you don't already have a Windows installer it's actually rather difficult to find one, and not everyone is set up to be able to install from source - me included.

Thinks: where did I leave that old binary installer?

True. If I come across one, I'll post it here.

But there are only Python 2.3 installers there. :-(

One other useful point: if you get an error like "failed because no controller found at subpath", it means you forgot to uninstall Rails before you started playing with Django :-)

Sorry to bother you with a small thing, but I can't get mod_python working with Apache & Python 2.4 on my computer at home (XP HE, SP2 + updates) while it is working on my computer at work (the "production" environment), which is also XP HE, SP2 + updates.

Apache says it can't find mod_python.so, but it is there.

I followed the exact same download/install methodology on both machines, so everything obvious is identical. What can I do more to find out the critical difference between the 2 environments?
