My bad... It seems it's not necessary to stop the Apache server. I was a bit confused by the Apache Monitor, a Win32 application putting an icon in the tray area showing the state of the Apache server and allowing you to control it. Turns out the monitor is a bit messed up by the test procedure, showing the status of the test server and not the "official" server. Thus when the tests stop, the monitor shows that the Apache server is stopped even though the "official" one isn't.

I have changed the documentation accordingly.

I'm a bit confused by:

   - The only trick is that you'll have to stop your Apache server
before launching
   the test, as the start/stop command can only apply to one single
Apache instance.

Does this apply to UNIX as well as Win32?

I ask as I have never bothered to explicitly shut down any running
instance of
Apache, yet haven't noticed any problems with running the tests. If
this is a Win32
specific instruction, you might want to note it as such. On UNIX
systems, where
the web server may be doing real work, people may not want to shut it
down just
to be able to test a new separate version of mod_python that hasn't
been installed
