adding server script to lab 6

parent b9b1decc
#!/usr/bin/env python3
# above 'she-bang' line makes the script executable from command line
""" A Simple Web Server
Run with ./
Make sure all cgi scripts are executable
for single script:
chmod +x
or for a whole directory:
chmod -r +x cgi-bin/
import http.server # import http.server module
import cgitb; cgitb.enable() # import and enable cgitb module for exception handling
PORT = 8000 # specifies the port number to accept connections on
server = http.server.HTTPServer # provides simple web server
handler = http.server.CGIHTTPRequestHandler # provides request handler
server_address = ("", PORT) # specify server directory and port number
handler.cgi_directories = ["/","/cgi-bin","/htbin"] # where CGI scripts will reside in relation to the `server' directory
print("Starting server...") # outputs a message
httpd = server(server_address, handler) # creates the server, passing it the server address and port number, as well as the CGI handler (httpd stands for HTTP Daemon)
print("serving at port", PORT) # outputs a message
httpd.serve_forever() # puts program in infinite loop so that the server can `serve_forever'
