You didn't specify system, so I assume it's a standard Linux
installation. CGI scripts by default run with permissions of the web
server, which are intentionally limited. However, you can create new
files and directories in /tmp, possibly using tempfile module. If you
want more than just a temporary file then you should consider using
database since writing arbitrary files from CGI scripts would otherwise
cause concurrency and security problems.

I am able to run the python program, but not able to make it write to
an output file. How can I enable Apache web server to do so ?
