Subject Patches for mod_fcgid welcome? remove-FCGID_DIE_COMM_ERROR-processes, increase-INITENV_VAL_LEN, disable_suexec_check
Date Tue, 17 Aug 2010 14:34:16 GMT
Hello list,

I've prepared some (mini-)patches for mod_fcgid 2.3.5 that I want to get rid 
off (read: they can be included in the next release).

Here we go:


In an old posting[1] in the users@httpd list I wrote about this (short

But I've got no responses at all. So call this a repost. B-)


I've increased the value of INITENV_VAL_LEN from 128 to 256. (This patch is 
trivial B-) I'm using the PERL5LIB for including some non-standard path and 
128 was just to short.


I've added an extra option to turn off the suexec stuff of mod_fcgid. It's 
useful if you want to run the apache as normal user (+mod_fcgid).

The default value is - of course - 0.

FcgidDisableSuexecCheck 1


Is somebody interested? How should I proceed? Should I just post the patches 
here? (There are all very small: <20 lines). They work with version 2.3.5.

Opinions? Suggestions? Ideas?


So long... Erik
