#3801 closed (fixed)

Improvement: In mod_python description, PythonPath for windows environment must be 'double-escaped'

Reported by: BastiG Owned by: jacob
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Keywords: mod_python windows
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


Just a hint for the django-users that use windows and apache(2.2): The PythonPath has to be escaped twice,
such as the following:

PythonPath " e:\\\\dev\\\\django\\\\project? + sys.path"

Otherwise django will not find the settings-file.

  • Needs documentation unset

Sorry for the aweful formatting. Here more readable:

PythonPath "[e:\\\\dev\\\\django\\\\project] + sys.path"

  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Ready for checkin

Agreed that this would be a good thing to add as a note for windows users to the [source:/django/trunk/docs/modpython.txt mod_python documentation]. Marking as ready for checkin, as this is a trivial addition.
