Python is "blessed" with very many web development frameworks.
For basic CGI programming you can use the basic weeb server
that comes with Python. For deployment Apache or any other
deployment scale server will do.

If you are using the more complex frameworks they will have their own 
development/deployment recomendations, so it all depends on what
framework you want to use. Everything from CherryPy to Zope or 
Your choice really.

There is a good set of documents in the Python webn site that
discuss the various web frameworks and options.
