Installation of mod_python 3.1.3 on Apache 2.0.50 on Windows Me/Win2k

P: n/a
Hi there,
I cannot install mod_python v3.1.3 on either Win2k/ActivePython 2.3.2
or WinMe/Python 2.3.4. When I run the Windows installer, I get the
following error message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Programme\Python23\Scripts\win32_postinstall.p y", line 86,
in ?
apachediroptions = getApacheDirOptions()
File "C:\Programme\Python23\Scripts\win32_postinstall.p y", line 45,
in getApacheDirOptions
apachekey = regkey(win32con.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,
"Software").childkey("Apache Group").childkey("Apache")
File "C:\Programme\Python23\Scripts\win32_postinstall.p y", line 34,
in childkey
return regkey(self.key, subkeyname)
File "C:\Programme\Python23\Scripts\win32_postinstall.p y", line 32,
in __init__
self.key = win32api.RegOpenKey(parent, subkeyname)
pywintypes.error: (2, 'RegOpenKeyEx', 'Das System kann die angegebene
Datei nicht finden.')
Exception exceptions.AttributeError: "regkey instance has no attribute
'key'" in <bound method regkey.__del__ of <__main__.regkey instance at
0x00CF1440>> ignored
*** run_installscript: internal error 0xFFFFFFFF ***
I checked the registry and found that the key mentioned in the error
message does indeed not exist. Is this a failure in my apache
configuration/installation or is the installation package of
mod_python incorrect? Are there any experiences with the
abovementioned configuration?
Thanx in advance
Peter

Hi

This error was found when installing the original mod_python 3.1.3 for
Windows installer on a non-Admin install of Python. You'll probably find
that the registry does exist, but under HKEY_CURRENT_USER, not
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

In fact mod_python has actually been installed correctly, but the
instructions about changing your apache configuration have not been
given, and the mod_python library hasn't been copied into the Apache
directory.

These issues should all be fix in the latest win32 build of mod_python
available from
http://davidf.sjsoft.com/files/mod_p...in32-py2.3.exe

Need to get Grisha to release this...

I would recommend removing the Scripts/win32_postinstall.py file before
running it...

Hope that helps, if you have errors report them here or on the
mod_python mailing list.

Why not post this to the mod_python mailing list??

The error looked like an error in some python installation scripts, so
it seemed to me more "pythonic" than "apachic". Anyways, thanks for
the hint.

mod_python is a bridge between apache and python, so it contains both
Python code and C code. the mod_python list is a good place to get help,
I would recommend joining it

Hi David.
The new version worked, and I am looking forward exploring server-side
cgi-scripting with my favorite programming language. Any reason why
the new installer is not released?
Thx

Hi Peter

I haven't had that much time to devote towards getting people to test
and give a thumbs up which is a requirement before a release.

So if you want to help please sign up to the mod_python list and say
what happened to you...

Thanks for the feedback

Cheers
