Mod_python Fix Solves Crashing Bug

by ServerWatch Staff

A new version of mod_python fixes a crashing bug caused by specific query strings and brings the module in sync with Python 2.3.

The Apache HTTP Server Project announced the release of versions 3.0.4 and 2.7.9 of mod_python.

According to an announcement made by the mod_python project's Grisha Trubetskoy, the two releases (for Apache 2.0 and 1.3 respectively) fix a bug in which causing a specific query string to be processed by mod_python would cause Apache to crash.

The announcement also noted that both releases have been patched to compile against Python 2.3 cleanly but contain no other changes or improvements from previous versions.

Mod_python is available for download from httpd.apache.org/modules/python-download.cgi. More information about the module is available from the project page.
