try changing this section to:

---------------------------------------
#!/usr/bin/env python

import cgitb; cgitb.enable()
import sys
sys.stderr = sys.stdout

import cgi
import MySQLdb
---------------------------------------

That should make it more robust (by being independant of the web server's 
paths etc.), and give it a better chance of sending errors to the browser.
