In this excerpt, I am going to take you through what Python is and how you can install the python app on your cPanel.The Python programming language is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level, dynamic language. Built-in data structures, dynamic typing, and dynamic binding make it an attractive language for Rapid Application Development, as well as a scripting language or glue language to connect existing components.
Python’s simple, easy-to-learn syntax encourages readability, which reduces maintenance costs. Modules and packages are built into Python, which promotes code reuse and modularity. Python is freely available as a source or binary library for all major platforms and can be distributed without charge.
Programmers love Python because of the increased productivity it provides. Edit-test-debug cycles are extremely fast since no compilation steps are involved.
A bug or bad input will never cause a segmentation fault when debugging Python programs. Instead, an interpreter raises an exception when it discovers an error.
Interpreters print stack traces when they don’t catch an exception. A source-level debugger enables the inspection of local and global variables, evaluating arbitrary expressions, setting breakpoints, stepping through code one line at a time, and so on.
As a testament to Python’s introspection power, the debugger is written in Python itself. The fastest way to debug a program is often to add a few print statements to the source code: this approach is very effective because it allows editing, testing, and debugging rapidly.
How to create a Python app in cPanel
The cPanel dashboard includes a utility that allows you to choose the Python version and install additional modules.
- Log in to cPanel and scroll down to the Software section and click on Setup Python App.
- click on Create Application button.
- Choose the Python version you wish to use(The latest version is recommended).
