just got FastCGI for apache_1.1.1 on Irix 5.3 complied tonight,
and i'm having some permission problems
when trying to run the test example echo.fcg

i followed the given apache example to the tee
as per the docs that were supplied with the mod_fastcgi.c mod,
and everytime i try and access the example from my web browser,
i get the following error:

[Tue Sep 17 00:55:50 1996] access to /usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs/fastcgi/examples/echo.fcg failed for soft.hotwired.com, reason: mod_fastcgi: Could not connect to application, OS error 'Permission denied'


i then thought i might try running httpd as root, as the live server. :)
and i got the same error.

i see the unix pipes being made in /tmp
and they have the perssions of:

eros:bianca 51% pwd 
/tmp
eros:bianca 52% ls -l
total 0
