Hello, this is my first post in this forum!
The above error message happened when i tried to rename one of my filenames from its greeklish name to greek characters.

files.py is a script that allows users to downlaod files from my server.
But i wish to present filenames in Greek and not in Greeklish

http://superhost.gr/?page=files.py
as it is now.

What can i do to make pth script accept greek filenames too?
Why does subprocess is complaining?

It is defined, i just didnt post the while, if statemtn, here it is:

if cur.rowcount:
    counter = ''' <center>
                      <table border=2 cellpadding=2 bgcolor=black>
                      <td><font color=lime>Αριθμός Επισκεπτών</td>
                      <td><a href="http://superhost.gr/?show=log&page=%s"><font color=yellow> %d </td>
                  </table><br>
              ''' % (page, data[0])

    if page.endswith('.html'):
        with open('/home/nikos/public_html/' + page, encoding='utf-8') as f:
            htmldata = f.read()
        htmldata = htmldata % (quote, music)
        template = htmldata + counter
    elif page.endswith('.py'):
        htmldata = subprocess.check_output( '/home/nikos/public_html/cgi-bin/' + page )
        template = htmldata.decode('utf-8') + counter

    print( template )

OK George, nd the rest fo the guys here it is the snippet of files.py responsible to print the greek filenames:

    for row in data:
        (url, hits, host, lastvisit) = row
        shorturl = url.replace( '/home/nikos/www/data/apps/', '' )
        lastvisit = lastvisit.strftime('%A %e %b, %H:%M')

        print('''
        <form method="get" action="cgi-bin/files.py">
            <tr>
                <td> <center> <input type="submit" name="shorturl" value="%s"> </td>
                <td> <center> <font color=yellow size=5> %s </td>
                <td> <center> <font color=orange size=4> %s </td>
                <td> <center> <font color=silver size=4> %s </td>
            </tr>
        </form>
        ''' % (shorturl, hits, host, lastvisit) )

and here is the the metrites.py snipper that calls files.py via subproccess to run:

    if page.endswith('.html'):
        with open('/home/nikos/public_html/' + page, encoding='utf-8') as f:
            htmldata = f.read()
        htmldata = htmldata % (quote, music)
        template = htmldata + counter
    elif page.endswith('.py'):
        htmldata = subprocess.check_output( '/home/nikos/public_html/cgi-bin/' + page )
        template = htmldata.decode('utf-8') + counter

    print( template )
