Good morning Gary,

I followed your instrutions but, when add the WSGIPythonHome to my
VirtualHost configurations i get this error:

"WSGIPythonHome cannot occur within <VirtualHost> section"

then when i change to Directory or LocationMatch sections i get this one:

"WSGIPythonHome not allowed here"
