# Ticket #4854: 4854.diff

 .. caution:: If you're using Windows, remember that the path will contain backslashes. This string is passed through Python's string parser twice, so you need to escape each backslash **twice**:: Forward slashes are recommended even if you are using Windows:: PythonPath "['c:\\\\path\\\\to\\\\project'] + sys.path" PythonPath "['c:/path/to/project'] + sys.path" Or, use raw strings:: PythonPath "[r'c:\\path\\to\\project'] + sys.path" You can also add directives such as PythonAutoReload Off for performance. See the mod_python documentation_ for a full list of options.
