When running PHP under FastCGI (with Suexec wrapper enabled), the variables _SERVER["SCRIPT_NAME"] and _SERVER["SCRIPT_FILENAME"] are returning the path and filename of the PHP-FCGI binary instead of the path and filename of the current executing script, that is, the values of _ENV["SCRIPT_NAME"] and _ENV["SCRIPT_FILENAME"] respectively. This breaks a lot of scripts relying on just $SCRIPT_NAME and $SCRIPT_FILENAME;

ie, when setting up this in httpd.conf :

ScriptAlias /fcgi-bin/ /usr/local/apache/bin/
<Location /fcgi-bin/>
  SetHandler fastcgi-script
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4
Action application/x-httpd-php /fcgi-bin/php.fcgi

When called from a script,
$SCRIPT_NAME becomes : /fcgi-bin/php.fcgi
$SCRIPT_FILENAME becomes : /usr/local/apache/bin/php.fcgi

Versions :
PHP 4.2.3 compiled with --with-fastcgi
mod_fastcgi 2.2.12
Apache 1.3.26

I modified sapi/fastcgi.c to register the correct _SERVER vars, and it works OK. At line 164, add :

        php_register_variable("SCRIPT_NAME", (SG(request_info).request_uri ? SG(request_info).request_uri:""), track_vars_array TSRM
        php_register_variable("SCRIPT_FILENAME", (SG(request_info).path_translated ? SG(request_info).path_translated:""), track_var
s_array TSRMLS_CC);

I don't think this hack still works for PHP < 4.2 because there is no _SERVER vars... aie...

And check what flex version you have installed.
The latest CVS should warn if you have too old version.

Confirmed that this is still a problem using FastCGI+Apache+PHP 5.2.11.

A patch to cgi_main.c as suggested in the original comment fixes this problem.

It would be great to see this problem fixed in later versions.
