  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:



    2. When the installer asks you where your apache installation is, point it to



    (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:


  2. 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:




    (replace perl references with python)



  3. 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
