    , following numerous tutorials that all failed to get the support working. I don't like or use Apache on the desktop for this same reason.

    For others of you who may want Python/CGI support on your iPod/Phone, note that lighttpd works as soon as you install it. I installed Python, fumbled with apache, uninstalled apache and swapped it for lighttpd, and it instantly was functional. I believe the same can be said about Perl and Ruby, but I'm not sure about PHP.

    Just figured this may help somebody who's getting frustrated with Apache.
