All the articles I can find on the web all are dated from 2005 - 2009. We are looking to move to fastcgi with php and apache but can't find any up to date information on the topics. Does anyone know of a good guide or why the information just kind of falls off? We're running Cent OS 5 for our boxes.
For example this guide http://howtoforge.com/how-to-set-up-apache2-with-mod_fcgid-and-php5-on-centos-5.2 is very good but the wrapper script php-fcgi-starter
is to aggressive.
In mine case, I had to set PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN to 0 and PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS to 500.
