Hello! I'm very newbie when it comes to linux ive done some stuff with the desktop version but nothing with servers. I was wondering what installation to get and such in order to offer the best support for my python application.

What distribution+version of Linux are you running for a server? The standard python for RedHat Enterprise Linux 6.5 systems and clones (such as CentOS) is version 2.6.6. I'm sure there are newer ones that you can download and install to upgrade if necessary. That said, there are a gazillion python apps that run on these systems very nicely.
