5.1.3 PythonTransHandler

Syntax: Python*Handler Syntax
Context: server config, virtual host
Override: not None
Module: mod_python.c

This handler gives allows for an opportunity to translate the URI into an actual filename, before the server's default rules (Alias directives and the like) are followed.

Note: At the time when this phase of the request is being processed, the URI has not been translated into a path name, therefore this directive will never be executed by Apache if specified within <Directory>, <Location>, <File> directives or in an .htaccess file. The only place this can be specified is the main configuration file, and the code for it will execute in the main interpreter.
