When I try to access index.py in my server root through http://domain/, I get a 403 Forbidden error, but when I can access it through http://domain/index.py. In my server logs it says "Options ExecCGI is off in this directory: /var/www/index.py". However, my httpd.conf entry for that directory is the same as the ones for other directories, and getting to index.py works fine. My permissions are set to 755 for index.py.
I also tried making a php file and naming it index.php, and it works from both domain/ and domain/index.php.
Here is my httpd.conf entry:
<Directory /var/www> Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all AddHandler cgi-script .cgi AddHandler cgi-script .pl AddHandler cgi-script .py Options +ExecCGI DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.py </Directory>
