It depends. Usually CGI compatibility mode is fine. The only drawback is that requests are serialized within each instance of REBOL. For most scripts this is actually faster than multiplexing over ports (FastCGI native mode), in particular if your script never waits (e.g. does not access databases via ODBC etc.) and the amount of data it processes is rather small. If each request takes considerable time to process (either because of backend database accesses or because of large amounts of data being sent/received) then consider using FastCGI native mode instead. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
