Subject [PATCH/heads up] mod_fcgid: checking for global-only directives in a vhost
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2009 15:18:23 GMT
This has the potential for breaking existing configs by forcing the admin to
remove some ignored directives they've coded in a vhost.

The affected directives are BusyScanInterval, DefaultMaxClassProcessCount,
DefaultMinProcessCount, ErrorScanInterval, IdleScanInterval, IdleTimeout,
MaxProcessCount, PHP_Fix_Pathinfo_Enable, ProcessLifetime, SharedmemPath,
SocketPath, SpawnScore, SpawnScoreUpLimit, TerminationScore, TimeScore, and

I suppose that a couple of these might have seemed to the administrator to
be more flexible than global-only, though it wouldn't have changed the
behavior when they added any of these to a vhost.

Please object now if you want to allow affected existing configurations to
continue to work.  We can probably change the hard failure to a warning.

(A case where I might want to issue a warning for an ignored directive is
with IPCConnectTimeout on Unix; it is ignored there, but it has entered the
web wisdom as something that can help certain problems regardless of
platform.  But that is independent of this patch.)
