[Answered] Making A Python File Under The Domain's Document Root, Executable


Recommended Posts

How to make a Python file directly under the document root of a hosted domain (and not under the "/public_html/cgi-bin" directory), executable?


I mean, how can I achieve to execute my Python file e.g. at www.example.com/index.py and not at www.example.com/cgi-bin/index.py ?

Activate Python:

Please note that you have to add a line in the .htaccess file to use Python.

The recommended directive is:

Addhandler cgi-script .py .pl .cgi

(This directive covers Perl, Python and CGI files.)

Getting a 500 Internal Server Error?

If you are getting a 500 Internal Server Error, it is most likely caused by the lack of execute permissions. Check to make sure the your Perl or Python script file has permissions of 755.
