I've mod_php installed with Apache 2.2. In one of my folders, I'm
using the cgihandler as the PythonHandler as my target host runs
python only as CGI. Here cgi.FieldStorage() doesn't seem to work. I
can see the form data in sys.stdin but cgi.FieldStorage() returns an
empty dictionary. Here's the code for the test script I am posting to
-

--
#!/usr/bin/python

import os
import cgi
import sys

print "Content Type: text/plain\n\n"
print "Hello CGI World !\n"

for key in os.environ:
  print key + "= " + os.environ[key]

print cgi.FieldStorage()

print sys.stdin.read()
--

And here's the output I see ..

--
