Serious Privileges Problem: Please Help

I have a serious privileges problem that is making it impossible to serve
python pages on a CentOS server. It appears that nobody on the CentOS
discussion list has a solution to this problem. I'm desperate and hoping
someone on this list can help.

[Fri Nov 06 11:50:40 2009] [error] [client 66.248.168.98] (2)No such file or
directory: exec of '/var/www/html/angrynates.com/global_solutions/index.py'
failed, referer: http://angrynates.com/global_solutions/
[Fri Nov 06 11:50:40 2009] [error] [client 66.248.168.98] Premature end of
script headers: index.py, referer: http://angrynates.com/global_solutions/

Now, the file does exist:

[root at 13gems global_solutions]# pwd
/var/www/html/angrynates.com/global_solutions
[root at 13gems global_solutions]# ls
....
-rwxr-xr-x 1 victor victor 275 Nov 6 07:05 index.py
....
and it serves just fine on another server, so there is no "premature end of
script headers".


Here's where it gets really weird. If I copy the code for index.py and
template.py which the former calls, and create files test.py and test2.py
and paste the code from the former files in those new files changing only
the import statement from "template" to "test2", the tests will resolve!!
Now, the ownership and mode are identical on all of them!!


[root at 13gems global_solutions]# ls -al | grep test.py
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 298 Nov 6 12:24 test.py
[root at 13gems global_solutions]# ls -al | grep test2.py
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5716 Nov 6 12:25 test2.py
[root at 13gems global_solutions]# ls -al | grep index.py
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 316 Nov 6 07:05 index.py
[root at 13gems global_solutions]# ls -al | grep template.py
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5806 Nov 6 07:06 template.py
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6093 Nov 6 07:06 template.pyc

where test.py is identical to index.py (other than the necessary import) and
template is identical to test2.py


fixfiles relabel /var/www/html
# might just work
It didn't

touch /.autorelabel
# and then reboot will relabel all copied files to the correct contexts for
the location
I rebooted apache with no luck

or you could turn off SELinux and reboot
I did that and the following two solutions with no luck:
echo 0 >/selinux/enforce

[root at 13gems ~]# cd /etc/
[root at 13gems etc]# mv selinux/ selinux.BAK
[root at 13gems etc]# mkdir selinux
[root at 13gems etc]# echo 0>/selinux/enforce

...and the problem continues:
[root at 13gems etc]# tail /var/log/httpd/error_log
