CherryPy / cherrypy / test / modpy.py

The branch 'cherrypy-3.0.x' does not exist.
"""Wrapper for mod_python, for use as a CherryPy HTTP server.

To autostart modpython, the "apache" executable or script must be
on your system path, or you must override the global APACHE_PATH.
On some platforms, "apache" may be called "apachectl" or "apache2ctl"--
create a symlink to them if needed.

If you wish to use the WSGI interface instead of our _cpmodpy interface,
you also need the 'modpython_gateway' module at:


1. Apache processes Range headers automatically; CherryPy's truncated
    output is then truncated again by Apache. See test_core.testRanges.
    This was worked around in http://www.cherrypy.org/changeset/1319.
2. Apache does not allow custom HTTP methods like CONNECT as per the spec.
    See test_core.testHTTPMethods.
3. Max request header and body settings do not work with Apache.
4. Apache replaces status "reason phrases" automatically. For example,
    CherryPy may set "304 Not modified" but Apache will write out
    "304 Not Modified" (capital "M").
5. Apache does not allow custom error codes as per the spec.
6. Apache (or perhaps modpython, or modpython_gateway) unquotes %xx in the
    Request-URI too early.
7. mod_python will not read request bodies which use the "chunked"
    transfer-coding (it passes REQUEST_CHUNKED_ERROR to ap_setup_client_block
    instead of REQUEST_CHUNKED_DECHUNK, see Apache2's http_protocol.c and
    mod_python's requestobject.c).
