mod_fcgid is a FastCGI module for Apache with a GPL license.

apache 2.4 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 mod_fcgidAUR package.


First you need to load the fastcgi module. Make sure that the following is present and uncommented in your httpd.conf:

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

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.
