If I do a ps on the machine (a SunServer 20, uname -a reports "SunOS arch9 5.4 generic sun4m sparc") the process doesn't show up, and a netstat -an shows nothing bound to port 9979. Has anyone seen this? If it makes any difference, we don't have a compiler on this machine, so I had to compile fast-cgi on a similar machine, but running 5.3 Also, is there an ExternalAppClass command for the Apache fast-cgi module, or a different syntax for the AppClass directive, to directly connect to this once I get it running, or do I run cgi-fcgi as an fcgi script and let it make the connection, or do I run cgi-fcgi as regular cgi? I suspect the middle option is correct, since that seems to make sense.
