I'm on a remote, shared linux-apache server. I currently use PHP/MySQL/HTML/CSS and need to be able to program in python. I talked with support and they said it was not installed and that I should do it.
I researched python and need advice on installing it. I see version 3.4.3 is the current stable one, and there are two source releases that can be downloaded from python.org: gzipped source tarball and XZ compressed source tarball.
Which should I download?
And can I download it to my private folder or should it be the cgi-bin folder (where PHP also resides)?
