Description matt nalley 2007-04-03 18:02:35 UTC
Description of problem: mod_python 3.1.3 has a bug (see URL) that makes it
impossible to disable PythonAutoReload.  The latest package available for CentOS
4.4 is mod_python 3.1.3 (release 5.1), which is apparently still affected by the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.1.3_5.1

How reproducible: Easily

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up Apache (I have 2.0.51-28) with mod_python and some python code (e.g. a
Django app).
[optional] Configure Apache with PythonAutoReload Off (it should be off by default)
2. Change some python code, but DO NOT restart Apache.
3. Refresh the web page a 8-10 times.
Actual results: About 25% of the time the new code will be interpreted by
mod_python, and the rest of the time it will interpret the old code.

Expected results: By default mod_python should not attempt to interpret new code
until Apache is restarted.

Additional info: Even when setting PythonAutoReload Off in Apache's .conf the
setting remains On (see URL for details).

According to that bug report at this bug was resolved in
3.1.4, so it should be a simple matter of backporting the fix from 3.1.4 into a
new release of the mod_python 3.1.3 package.
