mod_fcgid is a FastCGI module for Apache with a GPL license.
Apache 2.4 (available in the official repositories as ) now provides an official module, mod_proxy_fcgi. See configuration example for php-fpm and Apache HTTP Server#Using php-fpm and mod_proxy_fcgi.
Install the AUR package.
First you need to load the fastcgi module. Make sure that the following is present and uncommented in your
LoadModule fcgid_module modules/mod_fcgid.so
Then you need to tell Apache when to use FastCGI.
For example you can ask Apache to treat all .fcgi files as fastcgi applications:
<IfModule fcgid_module> AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi # you can put whatever extension you want </IfModule>
Remember that standard CGI restrictions apply, files must be in an ExecCGI enabled directory to execute.
It does not work? Apache error log (
/var/log/httpd/error_log) should help you find the problem.
