Message-Id: <9605211926.AA7960@VGI1MAIL.vanguard.com> To: fastcgi-developers <email@example.com> From: Patrick Walsh/VGI <Patrick_Walsh@vanguard.com> Date: 21 May 96 12:24:02 EST Subject: FCGI Externally Managed Servers Mark, It appears that we'll be running the httpd server on a different machine than the one used to run the FCGI processes. This means we will NOT be using Server managed FCGI processes, but externally managed processes. After starting the httpd server, we invoke our externally managed programs as follows: cgi-fcgi -start -connect :9999 DA.fcgi As with the Server Managed processes, we want to start multiple instances of an FCGI process. Is this possible with Externally Managed Processes? We tried the following: cgi-fcgi -start -connect :9999 DA.fcgi 2 To start 2 instances of DA.fcgi (our externally managed process). It doesn't work, we are not sure why yet. Is this legal? The App class info (in config/httpd.config) is defined as follows: ExternalAppClass DA -host renoir:9999 Responder DA /x/DA Thanks for your assistance.
