Edit: OS is CentOS 5
I installed Python 2.5.5 and am trying to run some Python scripts via the browser.
Honestly, I have not worked with Python before. I attempted to load the python module into Apache, but it is already loaded and was skipped. I also confirmed that I can run python scripts from my command line if I make them executable.
However when I put "http://www.example.com/test.py" into my browser, it returns unparsed HTML as follows:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN"> <html><head> <title>500 Internal Server Error</title> </head><body> <h1>Internal Server Error</h1> <p>The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.</p> <p>Please contact the server administrator, root@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.</p> <p>More information about this error may be available in the server error log.</p> <hr> <address>Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at www.example.com Port 80</address> </body></html>
I also have the following in my httpd.conf file.
AddHandler cgi-script .py
I am stumped as I do not know where to look from here. Does this ring a bell for anyone? Hopefully nothing too obvious that I am overlooking here...
Thank you in advance.
Edit: Found the following in the Apache error_log.
