Actually you don't need it. You can simply use the manual mode and copy the challenge under your web root (i.e. ignoring the mkdir /tmp/... part and cd-ing into your webroot instead of the newly created directory under /tmp/...). Because the python command that you need to issue will just run a dumb web server serving files from the directory you created in the first step. I.e. will do the same as your web server.

The documentation (as well as the instructions printed by --manual) should be a lot more clear about this.
