CGI scripts

Jay
Can I use Python for CGI scripts. It is telling me to use Perl and I
don't know any

To be honest I don't really no what CGI scripts are (soz)

I have purchased a domain name of my ISP PIPEX and 100MB space

And I don't know what I can do with it now

Will your pages be served by your ISP, that is the domain name that
you purchased will point to a server hosted your ISP? If yes and your
ISP hosts some form of python on those servers and allows you to use
it then you can serve your pages using python (via CGI or some other
mechanism). The best thing to do first is to ask your ISP what
facilities it has. Perl, php, python, ruby or what.

If your purchased domain name will point to a server that you
administer yourself then you can do pretty much everything you wish
(almost :)). For example you can install mod_python if you are using
Apache and serve your pages using that.

I just realized that you also mentioned having a 100MB quota, so
probably your pages will be served by your ISP. Then the best thing is
to ask your ISP if it hosts python or not.

According to the Pipex web page, if you got their low-end hosting package
based on Linux, you get PHP4, PHP5, or Perl. No Python.

Perhaps you should have checked your requirements before you spent money on
a web host. There are many good, inexpensive web hosting companies that do
allow Python scripting.
