Basic python help

I have the following simple html file that is trying to send data to a
python script, however, I am getting a weird server error:

This is my HTML:

<html>
<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="../cgi-bin/quoteprice2.py">
Ticker 1
<input type="text" name="ticker1" size=10>
<br>

<input type="submit" value="Submit">
<input type="reset" value="Reset">
</form>
</html>


This is my Python:

#!/usr/bin/python

import cgi
print "Content-type: text/html"
print

form = cgi.FieldStorage()
print form.keys()

print "<br>"

for x in form.keys():
print "%s=%s" % (x, form[x].value) + "<br>"


This is my error

What does the error log of the webserver say?

In your cgi script, try putting "import cgitb; cgitb.enable()"
on the next line right after "import cgi".

Also try changing your POST to GET.

Uhm... contact the admin like the error message says?

Are you sure the server supports Python for CGI?
