My python cgi script requires mechanize and BeautifulSoup, but I get internal server 500 errors when I try to import those modules into my script. How can I import those modules into my python script?

These modules would need to be installed on the server which would require a VPS or dedicated server. If you have a VPS or dedicated server, you may simply submit ticket to technical support to have them installed for you.
