[DB-SIG] Python Script to run an Oralce select statement and return the value in HTML

I would start by adding

import cgitb; cgitb.enable()

at the top of your script.  Since "hello world" seems to work, and you can
get the script to run via the command line, there's probably something
different about the environment that IIS is using to execute your script.
(99% of the time, I find that it's a permissions problem.)

Hope this helps!

I am often wrong, but I am never in doubt.
