I'm trying to set up a simple weblog tool called PyBlosxom. I was able to install it using easy_install but I got a permission denied message when I tried to create a blog:
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/jcastell/webapps/blog'
How do I change permissions so I can install this and other Python applications?

It looks like the problem you may be running into here is that you don't have permission to create directories since it is owned by root. The permissions on webapps won't change because the control panel needs those permissions to create applications.
To solve the problem you can create a "custom app listening on port" which will create a directory in webapps as long you have something that can run as a web server for your application.
