Using CentOS5, I have Apache configured with the following directives.
Alias /pscript/ /var/www/pscript/ <Directory "/var/www/pscript/"> Options +ExecCGI DirectoryIndex thetest.py AddHandler cgi-script .py </Directory>
When I call www.domain.com/pscript/ then my python script runs and prints out my
sys.path, which is displaying
When I call a different script that requires Python 2.5, I get a 500 Internal Server Error.
Looking at my Apache error_log, I see the following line:
[Wed Mar 03 16:58:44 2010] [error] [client 000.000.000.000] Please use Python 2.5 or greater
From the command line, running
python -V returns
Python 2.5.5. I have both 2.4 and 2.5.5 installed, but only 2.5.5 should be in use.
In an attempt to remedy the Apache problem I recompiled Python 2.5.5 to be safe, and made sure to enable shared library. Then I recompiled mod_python in case that was affecting something, but my
sys.path is still
I wonder, do I need to recompile Apache 2.2.3 itself? I simply need Apache to utilize Python 2.5.5.
Edit: It appears both of my python installations have shared libraries. Obviously the 2.4 version predates 2.5. Would this be a possible cause?
Thanks in advance.
