I’ve never needed to run mkdist.sh when setting up a CGI server, so you can probably just stop that process and not worry about the errors it returns. As long as the python file runs fine and you’re able to run your experiment and collect data, your setup should be configured properly.
That being said, I’ve never had to manually run the python file myself either. You’re on Dreamhost, so your webserver should be apache, and it should already be configured to run CGI scripts. If not, search something like “apache CGI” and you should find some relevant documentation—when everything’s set up, simply visiting the experiment.html file of your experiment automatically runs server.py in the background. For what it’s worth, I don’t think I’ve ever read that README, so I’m not sure how relevant it is
