This is going to be incredibly cryptic, simply because this entry is just a quick reminder to myself.
I have installed MAMP (MacOSX, Apache, mySQL, PhP), then I made sure it was all running…
and I created a directory where all my
localhost files will live…
I created another dir where the python cgi will live
and, finally I created a file named
test.py with the following script
#!/usr/bin/python print 'Content-Type: text/html' print print '<html>' print '<head><title>Hello from Python</title></head>' print '<body>' print '<h2>Hello from Python</h2>' print '<p>' print ''' so now you decide to work you big fat sack of sh!t. ''' print '</p>' print '</body></html>'
with changed permisions…
$ chmod 755 test.txt
Next step is to start python, like this
$ python -m CGIHTTPServer
which should return something similar to this
Serving HTTP on 0.0.0.0 port 8000 ...
so we can now access it through port 8000
