1.2 The mod_python version

If you wish to install the mod_python version then you must first install mod_python. It and instructions on installing it are available from http://www.modpython.org. Once you have installed mod_python place the file pyhp_module.py in your site-packages directory (usually /usr/lib/python2.0/site-packages). After this you must modify your Apache configuration so it contains the lines:

AddHandler python-program .pyhp
PythonHandler pyhp_module

If you wish to use static variables for speed then you also need the following line which tells the interpreter to keep the staticvariables dictionary between instances.

PythonOption AllowStatic True

These directives can be included in the main section of the Apache configuration file or in a directory, virtual host, or .htaccess section.
