Subject ScriptInterpreterSource: The Registry of Ineptitude.
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2002 18:24:35 GMT

I'm setting up my apache server and am having problem with cgi.

Out of sheer masochism I'm using windows 2000 and it seems that in order for
me to get a cgi file to be run I have to change the httpd.conf file to
include the line :
ScriptInterpreterSource Registry 

Now this works fine for me when I try to run my .py files because that
extension is registered to be opened by python.  The problem is that even
though the .conf file tells me that the ScriptInterpreterSource Registry
line is an optional one that enables a windows like behavior for files, I'd
really like to use the unix behavior if possible.  I'm trying out using .psp
(Python Server Pages) with Webware's WebKit but unfortunately .psp is
registered as a Paint Shop Pro file.  I'd like to use the Shebang line to
specify what to program to open files with, but it seems that I can't.  I'd
rather not have to register all .psp files to python server pages, I'd just
like to teach Apache how to deal with them.

Am I missing something?  Any Ideas?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
