python scripts ... Does xampp has internal support for it?

Python is not part of any XAMPP package.

SImply add .py extension to the AddHandler directive in httpd.conf


Code: Select all
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl


Code: Select all
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl .py

if you like to run Python Scripts (*.py) from anywhere inside your server. Restart Xampp after editing httpd.conf

Or simply put your Python Scripts into /opt/lampp/cgi-bin and you can call them via http://localhost/cgi-bin/scriptname.py (you may replace "localhost" by another domain name, if Xampp also runs on a public server).

In BOTH cases, you MUST supply a working "Shebang Line" (the very first line of your scripts) to every Python Script, which points to the Python interpreter. Example:

Code: Select all

As python is NOT part of Xampp, it must be installed somehow else. All Linux distributions are coming with a standard python interpreter, if it is not installed by default, you have to install it via your system specific installation tools.
