I have searched a lot before finding this tip, so I post it.
It show how to easily import with mod_python a module based on a personal .py file located somewhere on your box.
In this example, I will try to import the module bloup.py located in the same directory of my index.py mainpage.
when trying to import using the usual means, i get:
#!/usr/bin/env python import os import bloup ... >>>ImportError: No module named bloup
The solution I found was:
import os from mod_python import apache directory = os.path.dirname(__file__) bloup = apache.import_module('bloup', path=[directory])

Hope this helps,
