Question configuring apache for cgi scripts


I am trying to run python scripts on apache. UN fortunately, each time i click on the submit, the script doesnt execute. Instead the text of the entire script is dumped on the screen ( to the browser). I dont know what setting i need to change in the httpd.conf file to get the scritps running. can anyone please help me with this?

First off, make sure that your script is executable, and that regular users have permission to execute it. Make sure that the shebang line points to your python interpreter ie: #!/usr/bin/python

Now: You are looking for a section in httpd.conf that looks like this:
Code:
<Directory "/home/httpd/htdocs">

#
# This may also be "None", "All", or any combination of "Indexes",
# "Includes", "FollowSymLinks", "ExecCGI", or "MultiViews".
#
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
#
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews

#
# This controls which options the .htaccess files in directories can
# override. Can also be "All", or any combination of "Options", "FileInfo",
# "AuthConfig", and "Limit"
#
    AllowOverride None

#
# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
#
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>
You are going to want to add 'ExecCGI' to the 'Options line:

Code:
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews ExecCGI
HSH
