When comparing modes of PHP execution:

- CGI and FastCGI are directly comparable because the information that
Apache needs to pass to PHP is the same.  (In fact, mod_cgi[d] and
mod_fcgid use the same core Apache code to build almost all of that

You should be able to take your CGI configuration and change the
handler from cgi-script to fcgid-script and have PHP work as FastCGI.
One nuance is that if you're relying on ScriptAlias you'll need to use
both Alias and Options +ExecCGI in the FastCGI equivalent.

- mod_php and mod_fcgid configurations are not comparable.

I believe that the bug is in mod_rewrite, and is already tracked by
