Hi There,

I have an absolute newbie question.

I have a python script in the cgi-bin dir of the webserver - executable all
works and etc... it is #/usr/bin/python print "hello!" ..

if I access it from http://whatever/cgi-bin/hello.py it works.. it displays
"hello!"

I was now wondering how do I access it throuhg a .html page ? or sohuld it
be .pyhtml page ? I have tried both with no success.

The .html/.pyhtml code is:

<HTML>

Testing Python

<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="/cgi-bin/python.py"
ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data">


</HTML>

It displays "Testing Python" and tahts about it.

Could anyone help me out, if so that would be great.

Cheers,

Sam.
