Another FastCGI observations ...

Hi, as simple things should be simple, I found out following: 1) comment ScriptAlias directive, it overrides some things and you can't get clear results ... my config is: AddHandler cgi-script .cgi AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi both in global context Then .cgi and .fcgi suffixes are registered globally with cgi-script and fastcgi-script handlers ... 2) If you want to add ability to execute scripts to some directory, do so inside of directory directive: <Directory "/home/asko/public_html/cgi-bin"> Options ExecCGI .... some other stuff you need ... <Directory> Then, once you are in Linux, your set-up will work in default - fastcgi dynamic mode. Apache will start your apps dynamically. You can easily test it (my test.fcgi script): #!/usr/bin/rebolcmd -cs REBOL  print "Content-type: text/plain" print "" print "FastCGI test cript..." print mold system/options/cgi if not value? 'ble [ble: 0] ble: ble + 1 print ble Once I will reload my page, I can see 1, 2, 3, 4 ... numbers, so I can be sure, the script doesn't run in CGI mode 3) If you want static set-up, you can add following line: FastCgiServer "/home/asko/public_html/cgi-bin/test.fcgi" - processes 5 Above example will start 5 Rebol processes for test.fcgi script (= server - I finally know what they mean by "server" ;-) 4) FastCgiExternalServer "/home/asko/cgi-bin" -host localhost:7000 If you add above line, you will make Apache to connect to externally running Rebol task, listening on port 7000. The beauty is, that you can write in your browser following: http://www.rebol.cz/~asko/cgi-bin/some-non-existent-script.fcgi, and Apache will forward your request to your listening task. Heh, hacker would be probably surprised, if he would steal your machine, and found out, there are no scripts, only connection to machine behind your firewall :-) PS: of course, take my observations easy, I can be easily wrong :-) Cheers, -pekr-

Ah, my brain ... I forgot to mention: better forget other than FastCgiExternalServer if you want to use Apache under Windows ... -pekr-
