Your web server needs to be told to execute Python scripts. You can
handle it a few different ways, depending on your environment.
1. Place your .py script inside of a ScriptAlias'd /cgi-bin/ directory
which will force it to be executed.
2. Rename your .py script to .cgi and add an 'AddHandler cgi-script
.cgi' to your Apache configuration
3. Add an AddHandler cgi-script .py to your Apache configuration.
This of course assumes that Apache is configured in a way that would
allow execution and whatnot. Do yourself a favor and give
'http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/cgi.html' a read over as it's
going to cover a lot more than I just did.
