I wish to operate a Python CGI script on my small web server (Apache 2.2). After I attempt to run the test.py file I recieve the next error:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<html><head>
<title>403 Forbidden</title>
</head><body>
<h1>Forbidden</h1>
<p>You don't have permission to access /test.py
on this server.</p>
</body></html>

Within the error log:

[client 127.0.0.1] Options ExecCGI is off in this directory: C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/htdocs/test.py

What exactly may be the problem?

Add Options ExecCGI to some .htaccess file within the folder in which the python file is situated.

On top of that, avoid using CGI but WSGI to complete python applications...

The mistake log is suggesting that the Web server is not set up to permit running CGI scripts from that directory.

See How do I enable CGI execution in directories other than the ScriptAlias? within the Apache FAQ.

Try mod_python.this is an apache module which will get baked into apache itself and permit customers to operate python scripts on
