Subject RE: [users@httpd] Rails, fcgid and environment variables
Date Thu, 17 Jun 2010 19:09:07 GMT
With Rails & phusion -- and thus likely with fcgid -- the environment
variables you are seeing are likely what was in the Apache subprocess
when your persistent Rails or--more generaly--fcgid--process was
spawned.  To be safe, I suggest you clear them during Ruby
initialization, to avoid confusion later.

The per-request AUTHENTICATE_* variables from are NOT in the separate
Rails process environment--they are passed as request headers.
