"Python is rapidly gaining popularity in the Open Source community. Maybe the best proof of this is all the Python modules that are in development. People simply want to use Python in a wider range of programming areas. In a previous article from BeOpen.com, we showed you how to use the Gnome-Python module for developing Gnome applications. In this article series, you can learn how to integrate the Python interpreter into the Apache web server as a module, and then use Python's CGI module for writing Python-based CGI-scripts (note the distinction between Apache modules and Python modules). Using this technique, your Python-based CGI-scripts will execute much faster than if you used the native Python interpreter."

"In our first article, we'll detail the steps you need to know to successfully integrate the Python interpreter into Apache. If you just take your time, this is not hard to do at all."

"To build a Python module for Apache, there are three steps you need to take: installing the Python libraries, recompiling Apache with the PyApache module, and finally telling Apache about PyApache in the httpd.conf file. In this section, we will go through these three steps."
