  Works great for us. Had a few bugs we've fixed and submitted patches for
inclusion in the original dists.

  It's a SS20 with Solaris 2.5.0, Apache 1.2.0, 1.4.3 (plus patches), perl
5.004_01 or so, FCGI-0.28 (plus patches), and sfio.

AddType application/x-httpd-fcgi .fcg
FastCgiIpcDir /web/tmp
AppClass /export/home/djh/htdocs/adverts/ad.fcg -processes 1
-listen-queue-depth 50 -restart-delay 1
AppClass /export/home/bryant/mpog_html/adverts/ad.fcg -processes 2
-listen-queue-depth 50 -restart-delay 1

  I think that is the only fastcgi related conf stuff.
