Hello Experts!

Any of you Python experts ever experienced a similar issue to the one I am facing right now?  I have set up a simple "Hello World" python cgi script which runs just fine in SSH, but gives a 500 Internal Server Error when viewed through a browser.

Here is the script:
import cgi

print("Content-Type: text/html\n\n")
print("Hello World!")
