Subject [users@httpd] [mod_fcgid] automatic restart of modified scripts
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2009 19:57:09 GMT
Hi all,

I've set up mod_fcgid on two of my servers (one running gentoo, the
other RHEL5). From what I can tell, the original mod_fastcgi had a
configuration option that would cause it to check the mtime of a script
each time it was requested, and restart that script if it was already
running and the mtime of the script was newer than the time the running
process was started. Based on the documentation, it appears that there
is no such option for mod_fcgid, nor a reasonable way to emulate this
functionality without also being inefficient (e.g., setting
MaxRequestsPerProcess to 1). Is this analysis correct, and if so, are
there any plans to implement such a feature? If not, is there any
chance of a patch being accepted for such a feature?

Thank you,
