Subject [users@httpd] Holding on to CGI
Date Wed, 07 May 2003 14:07:22 GMT

I hope somebody can reply me on this.
As far as I know, the Apache will kill any CGI that points to a dropped 
connection. Now, I am writing some CGIs that affect the actual server 
configuration and some of the CGIs are really time-consuming. These 
operations will return only a status, the client won't need much more than 
In any case, the client (or its connection) will not be so important as all 
it needs to is to post the request to the server and the server will 
respond to it on the server side.
So, my question really is: can be Apache stopped from killing CGI's when 
the client connection is dropped? If so, how?

Thanks for any input on this.
