So, I downloaded Apache for Windows + mySQL just yesterday, and so far I am
able to run only CGI. FastCGI for windows is some .dll (other modules are
surprisingly .so files even under Windows).
The situation repeats as always - you will not find what you need in your
docs. I don't know how to properly specify load module directive. The strange
thing is, my Apache CAN run .fcgi files as CGI, while .fcgi suffix can't be
found in any of config files. I thought that by default it runs only .cgi.
As for performance - it will be probably better to run it in standalone mode,
but I talked to Maarten and he told me he runs it in Server mode only, and it
The piggy thing about all the fastcgi concept is, that web server sends your
requests to whatever instance it wants. There is session afinity patch
available, but I don't know if it is kept being up-to-date. However, I joined
fastcgi ml, and was told that session afinity is going to become part of
fastcgi itself. It is somehow on priority list, but depends upon author, if he
finds enough of free time soon.
I too, would like to achieve some fine-tuned setup. The other thing about
Apache under Windows is - it uses threads, but only synchronous connections.
They will not change it, so Windows users will be better with Apache 2.0, but
it is still just beta.
I am somehow confused currently and don't know if I should use AddHandler,
SetHandler directive, where do I specify FastCGI server or FastCGIExternal
server, how do I load module itself ... on the other hand, I am playing with
it just not more than one hour.
If there is somoene with fastcgi + /Command experience, please share with us
