To add Python to XAMPP, you can follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you have installed XAMPP on your system. If not, download and install it from the official Apache Friends website.
  2. Download and install Python on your computer. You can download the latest version of Python from the official Python website.
  3. After installing Python, open the XAMPP control panel.
  4. From the XAMPP control panel, click on the "Config" button for the Apache server.
  5. Select "Apache (httpd.conf)" to open the Apache configuration file in a text editor.
  6. In the Apache configuration file, search for the following line:
1
#LoadModule cgi_module modules/mod_cgi.so


  1. Uncomment the line by removing the '#' at the beginning. It should look like this after uncommenting:
1
LoadModule cgi_module modules/mod_cgi.so


  1. Save the changes and close the Apache configuration file.
  2. From the XAMPP control panel, click on the "Config" button for the Apache server again.
  3. This time, select "Apache (httpd-xampp.conf)" to open another configuration file.
  4. At the end of the file, add the following lines:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/xampp/cgi-bin/"
<Directory "C:/xampp/cgi-bin/">
    AllowOverride None
    Options None
    Require all granted
    AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .py
</Directory>


Make sure to replace "C:/xampp/cgi-bin/" with the actual path to the directory where you want to store your Python scripts.

  1. Save the changes and close the Apache configuration file.
  2. Restart the Apache server from the XAMPP control panel to apply the changes.
  3. Now you can place your Python scripts in the directory specified in the configuration file (e.g., "C:/xampp/cgi-bin/").
  4. You can access your Python scripts from a web browser by visiting the following URL:
1
http://localhost/cgi-bin/your_script.py


Replace "your_script.py" with the name of your actual Python script.
