I have a (most likely very stupid) question to ask: I recently setup a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 to use as an internal web server for some very basic tasks. I came across a python script that I want to serve up from this box.

It's a relatively basic script and I'm sure a relatively basic process to serve it up from apache web server. I want to learn for the sake of learning. Any/all help anyone can provide would be very appreciated.

I guess it's worth noting that I have complete and unrestricted access to this box. (Forgive me for doing this, but I have enabled root access cringe&shutter)

either cd to its directory first, then python, or python /path/ – Jacob Vlijm Mar 31 '14 at 13:53

from a commandline;


then just enter. Then you should get an installation screen.
