thanks for the fix. is always up to date, however I didn't find anything about FastCGI Sapi.

Care to give me a link (online on or

I have to disagree that this bug is fixed.
Not ownly lighttpd is able to use FastCGI;-)

We have also Apache on various plattforms and IIS with FastCGI?
In the Docs we explain how to setup webservers with mod_php, isapi, cgi, etc.
In this context, we have no instructions execpt lighttpd.

I've added mod_fcgid docs to the Apache/Windows install doc, and will be 
adding the comparable version to the Unix doc within the next week or 
so. Meanwhile, you can look at the Windows version and make the relevant 
path changes to get it to work for Unix.

mod_fcgid is now the recommended FastCGI implementation for Apache 2.x. 
I don't know, yet, what one is supposed to do for Apache 1.3, since I've 
never run fastcgi on 1.3, and don't intend to, now that we're in the 
21st century. :)
 [2010-01-07 11:49 UTC]
Rich, for references, then FastCGI w/IIS is documented here:

As for FastCGI on 1.3, I think it would be bad to document information that would be *useless* or hacky in the end, so perhaps we should just leave that out.

What happened?
 [2010-10-25 15:20 UTC]
Hard to say what happened. I think I'll go with "life got in the way", which I 
suppose means that I'm blaming my kids. :)

I'll try to get this knocked out while at ApacheCon next week, but if I don't, I 
might end up relinquishing ownership of this issue so that someone else can take a 
whack at it.

FastCGI has long been bundled with PHP, to the effect that no versions in their 
maintenance cycle still require it be installed manually. In fact, using regular 
CGI requires special effort.

I do not believe that documentation for FastCGI is warranted, much less required.

If there are no objections, I'm going to close this bug as wont-fix.

AFAIK FastCGI is the best way to use PHP. Why do you think it deserves no 
 [2012-01-14 05:21 UTC]
I didn't mean that FastCGI should go undocumented. I just don't see the point in 
providing install instructions for a component of PHP that has long been bundled, 
and could even be considered intrinsic.
 [2012-01-14 08:51 UTC] olafvdspek at Gmail dot com
I think it's about the webserver-side installation and about setting PHP FPM via an init script etc.
 [2012-11-12 02:23 UTC]
I'm going to close this on the grounds that it's too vague to really write anything for — specific suggestions for improving the FPM documentation, in particular, would be welcome, but I don't think this is the bug to cover that.
