This question (Python CGIHTTPServer Default Directories) details how to set paths for location of cgi-bin files for Python CGIHTTPServer. From testing this, it seems that you cannot mix .py and .html files in the same folder: in cgi-bin it processes .py files fine, but asked to serve a static html file I get
127.0.0.1 - - [08/Jan/2017 10:51:22] "GET /dev.html HTTP/1.1" 200 - Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.7/CGIHTTPServer.py", line 248, in run_cgi os.execve(scriptfile, args, env) OSError: [Errno 8] Exec format error 127.0.0.1 - - [08/Jan/2017 10:51:22] CGI script exit status 0x7f00
Is this the real intended behaviour, or am I missing something? The sparse and opaque documentation says "The class will however, run the CGI script, instead of serving it as a file, if it guesses it to be a CGI script. Only directory-based CGI are used — the other common server configuration is to treat special extensions as denoting CGI scripts."
How do I do "treat special extensions as denoting CGI scripts". What method or setting do I use, or which magic words do I utter? Or is this just an ineptly worded tip-off that I just can't do it?
I'm only using this for quick tests, and while I could restructure to separate .py and .html files I have other constraints that would make this a painful exercise.
I took oryginal
CGIHTTPServer.py and add two elements
CGIHTTPServer._url_collapse_path(self.path)to use it outside file
and more important: checking extension
if not tail.endswith('.html'):
but it could be done better.
I didn't use
because server may execute scripts in other languages if you need - ie.
import BaseHTTPServer import CGIHTTPServer class MyHandler(CGIHTTPServer.CGIHTTPRequestHandler): # code from oryginal CGIHTTPServer.py def is_cgi(self): # v added `CGIHTTPServer.` collapsed_path = CGIHTTPServer._url_collapse_path(self.path) dir_sep = collapsed_path.find('/', 1) head, tail = collapsed_path[:dir_sep], collapsed_path[dir_sep+1:] if head in self.cgi_directories: if not tail.endswith('.html'): # <-- new line #if tail.endswith('.py'): # <-- new line self.cgi_info = head, tail return True return False # --- test --- MyHandler.cgi_directories = ['/'] server = BaseHTTPServer.HTTPServer(('', 8000), MyHandler) server.serve_forever()
