I'm trying to get FastCGI to run normal php scripts from mod_fastcgi.
The documentation seems outdated. So far I have done the following:
-------downloaded and re-installed php, with:
./configure --enable-fastcgi (no errors)
cp sapi/cgi/php-cgi /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/fcgi/
---------put this in httpd.conf (as you can see I've tried a few other
LoadModule fastcgi_module modules/mod_fastcgi.so
#AddType application/x-httpd-fastphp .fphp
# Dynamic Settings
#AddHandler fastcgi-script fcgi fphp
# Static Settings
# FastCgiConfig -singleThreshold 1
Action fastcgi-script /fcgi/php-fcgi
Action x-httpd-fastphp /fcgi/php-fcgi
(also tried with and without the mod_php being loaded).
Currently, the server will run regular fastcgi apps (say, written in C
using the FCGX_Accept loop) that are in /fcgi correctly, but not
regular php scripts. logs/error_log gives this repeatedly:
[warn] FastCGI: (dynamic) server "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/fcgi/
test.php" has failed to remain running for 30 seconds given 3
attempts, its restart interval has been backed off to 600 seconds
So it appears it's still running php scripts with the normal mod_php,
or else the newly-compiled php isn't working (When I just run fcgi/
fcgi somescript.php, it spews out the contents just like regular;
isn't it supposed to fork and await input from the server?).
Running strace on httpd does not show it opening the php-cgi binary
when I request a php page; is there a way to debug what it's doing vs.
should be doing when loading that config? Docs are sparse, help
