How would I enable my Litespeed server to process .fcgi files using a FastCGI module? I tried setting the handler to fcgid-script already but that doesn't work.


AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi
Options +ExecCGI

Just to avoid confusion, I am not trying to run PHP or Ruby scripts through FastCGI. I want to run raw assembly that is compiled to work with FastCGI. (I can confirm the code works, have tested on Apache already)


I know this is old, but perhaps it will help someone. The best way to do this is going to be to set up a script handler and external application in LSWS's settings. Check out this page for reference.


  1. Go into the WebAdmin console > External App > Add
  2. Select FastCGI Application
  3. Name the application and set other settings, the most important being where the backend FCGI script processor is located
  4. Save it
  5. Create a script handler (WebAdmin console > Script Handler > Add)
  6. In the script handler, set .fcgi files to go to the FastCGI external application you just created.
