have you read the comments made by others. How do you expect people can help
you if you don't provide the necessary information? Just repeating the same
description "Error 500 ..." is, well, not helpful at all.

Before uploading a CGI script to a server, please check at least on a shell or
IDLE or whatever, if the script executes at all or if it has syntax errors.

When using a webserver at a provider, you must learn how to access the error
log. This info must be somewhere in their documentation. Or call their support
line to find out. You will then be able to give us the necessary information
from the error log. Please come back *after* you've done that.
