Try googling mod_wsgi. While "real" python web-programming is usually
done a bit different (django, turbogears, pylons and lots of others I
forgot), I think it comes close to what a PHP-programmer would expect
how a webapp begins.
It boils down to a python-file saying
def application(environ, start_response):
status = '200 OK'
output = 'Hello World!'
response_headers = [('Content-type', 'text/plain'),
Well, I did the googling - here you have a starter:
See the configuration-section.
