Use of suexec may be one of the alternatives. Another one is to kill the running fastcgi process. In that case, even though SysAdmin must kill the process, the web server will keep running and the process manager will exec() the new binary of the fastcgi executable. One of the latest versions of Apache also introduced the concept of gentle restarts, where the connections do not get interrupted while config files are reread. Current versions of mod_fastcgi does not take advantage of this, but the future one would hopefully use it. Hope that was of some help. Stanley.
