  1. Ok, I haven't tested with the win32com module yet, but simply getting mod_python running was easy: 1. Download the win32 build of mod_python from here: http://httpd.apache.org/modules/python-download.cgi 2. When the installer asks you where your apache installation is, point it to UNISERVER_FOLDER/udrive/usr/local/apache2 (Where UNISERVER_FOLDER is the folder on disk where you've put your Uniform Server). This simply tells the installer where to find the /modules directory off of your apache2 directory, which is where mod_python.so belongs 3. Add the following line to apache.conf: LoadModule python_module modules/mod_python.so 4. Set the handling method of your choice as described here: http://webpython.codepoint.net/mod_python_...e_configuration
  2. Oh -- thanks for the reply, Ric! Sorry to edit my post underneath you apparently while you were responding. Ok I'm going to try just dropping in mod_python for Windows. I got the impression from previous discussions that doing it for US was a project, but maybe things have changed since those posts. I'll post back and let you know.
  3. Nevermind -- I realized I can just use python/CGI! It's probably slower than a mod_python solution, but in a one-user scenario, I hope it's fine. I do want to distribute the results so I'll need to come up with a bundling solution. If that is something that anyone is interested in hearing about, reply and let me know. Just for reference, here's about all I currently know about running python as a CGI handler on windows: http://www.thesitewizard.com/archive/addcgitoapache.shtml (replace perl references with python) http://docs.python.org/library/cgi.html
  4. Hi guys, I just discovered the project and I've been searching the forums and wiki. I see one or two abandoned attempts to produce a python plugin, and a little discussion indicating a desire to keep the package focused on PHP. Is python something you maintainers would even want in the project if I made it? How involved would it be for me to do, and where would I start gathering info on how to do it? Why I ask: I'm starting a project for which I'd much rather use python (including pywin32-level capabilities) than PHP. My technical level: experienced apache admin and professional coder Thanks! Mike
