Encoding Python CGI scripts

Thank you in advance for your answers

Not sure what you mean by encoding. Doesn't adding a CGI handler to the httpd.conf file do the trick, something like this:
Then again, if you want to byte-compile the code, then see my answer to this thread on the same forum.

Byte-compiling the Python code doesn't hide it enough. It's easily decompiled back into the source using decompyle.
