The Python script can access the PHP page on the server directly, by
just making a request to localhost (if the PHP page is on the same
server). You could use urllib or some higher level HTTP client library
and pass the data to the PHP page either in a GET or POST request. The
PHP page looks just like any other web service to the Python script.
Based on the results from the request, it can then return HTML to the
client with a redirect to the PHP script, so the user can see the
updated data, or an error message.
