), but the program has to access a server to collect and store data and I believe it has to be server side not client side. I'm rather inexperience with this any help in pointing me to resources on converting python to web code would be much appreciated.
Is that 30mb of python code? If it is, then it's an awful lot of code, and you've got a lot of work ahead of you! If it's compiled with something like py2exe, then you might be alright
Python can be used as a web programming language! There are frameworks out there like Django and Bottle that you might be able to use to make this easier. If you're more familiar with python than anything else, you might be best off doing something like that.
As far as automated code conversion goes... I'd probably stay away, especially since you're going from a desktop application to a web application.
Just realised this is a fairly hefty bump. Sorry about that.
