You should look in your Apache error log to see what's been entered there -
you usually find much more information than you get in the browser, and it's
often obvious what the problem is.
Before going further, try the following:
1. Write a Python script and put it in the standard Apache cgi-bin
directory, which comes ready-configured to run programs. This will eliminate
configuration as a source of the problem.
2. Put a "shebang" line at the start of the script to tell Apache where to
find the Python interpreter and identify the script as a script. It will
look something like
3. See if you can run this script in a browser.
If not, make sure you check the Apache error log, and include any entries in
it, as well as copying the exact browser error message, in a further post.
