  16. .SH DESCRIPTION
  17. fcgi-cgi is a FastCGI application to run normal cgi applications. It doesn't
  18. make CGI applications faster, but it allows you to run them on a different
  19. host and with different user permissions (without the need for suexec).
  20. .P
  21. lighttpd2 won't have a mod_cgi, so you need this FastCGI wrapper to be
  22. able to execute standard cgi applications like mailman and cgit.
  23. .P
  24. nginx recommends something similar, they implemented the wrapper in Perl:

  27. For running you probably want spawn-fcgi (http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/spawn-fcgi)
  28. .SH EXAMPLE
  29. Example usage:
  30. spawn-fcgi -n -s /var/run/fastcgi-cgi.sock -u www-default -U www-data -- /usr/bin/fcgi-cgi
