FastCGI apps are just programs, they may have been written in a lot of
different languages.  Your ability to disassemble them is more or less
tied to the authors chosen language.  Note: the web interface will
most likely not give you access to the executable.  For that you will
need some other type of access to the box such as an SSH login.
