im new to python, been working in php largely in the past, but wanted to learn something new and different.

as such, i want to use python to create webpages, but have been tinkering in the IDLE until now...

when using php, I use a local install of WAMP... is there something available like this for python?

i also want to play around with some mysql integration but using a database currently on the web... keeping the python files local...

Can anyone advise on the best route?

Thanks

Hi.
You can try installing apache, python, apaches´modpython and python-mysqldb, that´s all what you need. But for Python web programming, I use Django, a Python´s web framework tha makes your live easy, give it a try and you´ll never look back to php or something else.
cheers.
