now sadly outdated
Not quite sure why this is but it looks this is outdated now. The current (non-free) libapache2-mod-fastcgi depends on apache2.2-common. This should break the self-compiled suexec-fcgi.
I notice that current debian packages of php4/5-cgi are fcgi enabled. Why not use those instead of compiling your own?
Has anyone tried mod_fcgid instead of fastcgi? It's looking good (debian package and all that) but I cna't configure it like your example for fastcgi...
I'll keep exploring but would appreciate any help!
