Subject mod_proxy_fcgi and flush
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2017 18:08:14 GMT
One of the comments on the documentation page of mod_proxy_fcgi
(http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_proxy_fcgi.html) mentions an
issue with flush:

There is just no flush support it seems. I attempt to use PHP flush()
and it won't work until you fill up a buffer first, rendering Server
Sent Events impossible with proxy_fcgi. It worked very well with
"-flush" with mod_fastcgi FastCgiExternalServer.

If this is really the case, all web applications that use push
notifications won't be working with mod_proxy_fcgi.

The wiki page on https://wiki.apache.org/httpd/php also suggests to use
mod_proxy_fcgi, but if above is true, this might lead to problems.

What is your take on this?
