Hi everyone
I'm trying to use the cgi library to create a python script and loading it from a web page. I have already done the necessary imports, and the default commands to receive data from "html" are written too. The final version is something like this:

#!/usr/bin/python

import subprocess
import cgi
import cgitb

cgitb.enable()

input = cgi.FieldStorage()

…. my code (do something with input)….


#printing the response

	print "Content-Type: text/html"    
	print                               
	print "<TITLE>My title:</TITLE>"
	print "</HEAD>"
	print "<BODY>"
	print ….. bla bla …
	print "%s"%theoutput
	print "</BODY>"

Besides, my call from my index.html is like this:

 <form action="/scripts/python_script.py" method="post">
      	<input name="inid" type="text" size="20" class="input" /><br/><br/>
        <input type="submit" value="accept"  class="button"/>
 </form>

well, the thing is that when i do the call from the browser: 

http://localhost/index.html 
           |
          V
put the data and click on the "accept" button
           |
          V
http:/localhost/scripts/python_script.py

I only get the python_script.py as a plain test by response (the script printed on my browser). 
I have already changed the permissions for python_script.py. I have checked the import cgi,cgitb in the python shell (i am using v2.7) and they work fine. So, i don't know what it is going wrong here.

A little help please… any idea?
Thanks anyway for your time.
