Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49902] FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2011 07:52:44 GMT

--- Comment #10 from Kyle <> 2011-12-13 07:52:44 UTC ---
I have been building out a tweaked LAMP set up on a fresh Debian Squeeze

Server version: Apache/2.2.16 (Debian)
Architecture:   64-bit
Server MPM:     Worker

Utilising fcgid_module (shared), 2.3.6-1 (Squeeze stable as of writing).

My story is similar to @Joost I guess.

I've had zero luck trying to make FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass work, either at the
Server or Virtual level. I put in some serious effort to get it to work but to
no avail. So I think that is another confirmed case of this bug in action.

I apt-get source libapache2-mod-fcgid, applied Jeff's patch listed here (by
hand), installed etc and *shit started to work*. Kudos @Jeff for sharing this

I was then able to set a default server FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass and then
override for specific vhosts too. I am still in the testing phase with my
latest cfg's but its looking very promising indeed.


@Miroslav, when I had zero luck with FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass, I moved on to
try FcgidCmdOptions but no matter what I tried, I couldn't get any of the
potential options to take effect :(
Specifically, I tried passing env vars to the wrapper, they were not being set
(or I was doing it wrong).
I also tried specifying MaxProcesses but that didn't work either.

The docs are not that clear on what to specify as the *command*, apache docs
suggest the wrapper but that seems to have no effect. I also tried specificing
php5-cgi as the command, also no effect.

I have _NOT_ re-tested FcgidCmdOptions since patching but I doubt that is fixed
or perhaps I'm just *doing it wrong*.
