fcgi-cgi is a FastCGI application to run normal cgi applications. It doesn't
make CGI applications faster, but it allows you to run them on a different
host and with different user permissions (without the need for suexec).
lighttpd2 won't have a mod_cgi, so you need this FastCGI wrapper to be
able to execute standard cgi applications like mailman and cgit.
nginx recommends something similar, they implemented the wrapper in Perl:
For running you probably want spawn-fcgi (
Example usage:
spawn-fcgi -n -s /var/run/fastcgi-cgi.sock -u www-default -U www-data -- /usr/bin/fcgi-cgi
