    Hey guys, I am absolutely stressed out with this, I just cant figure it out. Im trying to get fastCGI to work on Apache/1.3.37 with php-4.4.3.

    I need to run phpsuexec and eaccelerator together and for that I need to get fastCGI working on my box.

    Here's what I have done so far:

    I downloaded and compiled fastCGI.

    Ran the following commands:
    /usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -o -c *.c
    /usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -i -a -n fastcgi
    so my server returns and shows that fastCGI is loading:
    Server Version: Apache/1.3.37 (Unix) mod_fastcgi/2.4.2 mod_gzip/ mod_auth_passthrough/1.8 mod_log_bytes/1.2 mod_bwlimited/1.4 mod_ssl/2.8.28 OpenSSL/0.9.7a PHP-CGI/0.1b

    I added the following to the bottom of my httpd.conf
    <IfModule mod_fastcgi.c>
        FastCgiIpcDir /tmp/fcgi_ipc/
        AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi
        FastCgiSuExec /usr/local/apache/bin/suexec
    FastCgiConfig -maxClassProcesses 20 -maxProcesses 20 -minProcesses 1 -processSlack 1 -idle-timeout 120
    mkdir -p /tmp/fcgi_ipc
    chmod 755 /tmp/fcgi_ipc -R
    then I compiled PHP-4.4.3 with the following:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-xml --enable-bcmath --enable-calendar --with-curl --enable-ftp --with-gd --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local --with-png-dir=/usr --with-xpm-dir=/usr/X11R6 --enable-magic-quotes --with-mysqli --with-mysql=/usr --enable-discard-path --with-pear --enable-sockets --enable-track-vars --with-zlib --enable-force-cgi-redirect -–enable-fastcgi
    make install
    finally a service httpd restart

    needless to say my server api still shows CGI and a php -v doesnt display fastCGI at all.

    What am I missing guys? :-(

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    What does a phpinfo page show?
    Create a PHP file like this:
    and access it in your browser. Does it show fastcgi?

    Hey if you want you can look at here:

    '--enable-fastcgi' is in the config.

    root@host [~]# php -v
    PHP 4.4.3 (cli) (built: Dec  9 2006 11:13:27)
    Copyright (c) 1997-2006 The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v1.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2004 Zend Technologies

        with Zend Optimizer v2.6.2, Copyright (c) 1998-2006, by Zend Technologies
    does not show fast cgi.

    from my httpd.conf:

    LoadModule fastcgi_module     libexec/
    AddModule mod_fastcgi.c
    <IfModule mod_fastcgi.c>
        FastCgiIpcDir /tmp/fcgi_ipc/
        AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi
        FastCgiSuExec /usr/local/apache/bin/suexec
    Action application/x-httpd-php4 "/php4.fcgi"
    AddType application/x-httpd-php4 .php
    AddType application/x-httpd-php4 .php4
    AddType application/x-httpd-php4 .php3
    AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
    AddType application/x-httpd-php4 .phtml
    FastCgiConfig -maxClassProcesses 20 -maxProcesses 20 -minProcesses 1 -processSlack 1 -idle-timeout 120

    Hum, I thought it would tell me that fast cgi was running with the command php -v. How can I tell if it's running or not? I just have the feeling im missing something :-(

    It's not working, I just realized that eAccelerator works with fastCGI and as a apache module only, not regular CGI, so looking down at the eAccelerator entry it says false to both.

    uhg, im so lost :(

    What's in Vhosts_ispconfig.conf?

    Is the PHP module included in your Apache configuration?

    This error looks like a rewrite error somewhere to me. Does this error happen when you start apache or when you access a webpage?

    It seems you have a redirect loop somewhere... Please check Apache's error log.
