FastCGI Hello World Test?

Jun 20, 2009

Just moved to a 1and1 managed server in which FastCGI is enabled.

But I'm having problems getting Movable Type to run under fastcgi - which has never been a problem before, even on shared hosts.

Is there a 'hello world'-type test for fastcgi - so I can check if it is enabled?

Test Dns Lookups From Around The World

Mar 15, 2008

I am trying to debug a dns problem.

What I need is for you to do a dns lookup and report:

1) the address that was returned, the last octect will do.

2) the area of the world you queried from

The answers *will* vary because the dns server is geolocation enabled. Or, at least they *should* vary. But, someone claims its buggered.

The host name to lookup is:

Microsoft FastCGI :: The FastCGI Handler Was Unable To Process The Request

Jan 6, 2008

I installed FastCGI and configured it via fcgiconfig.js using this command

cscript fcgiconfig.js -add -section:"PHP" -extension:php -path:"C:PHPphp-cgi.exe"
It configured fcgiext.ini and added the .php extension to the sites and what not.

When accessing a php script, I get the following error though:

FastCGI Error

The FastCGI Handler was unable to process the request.
Error Details:The FastCGI process exited unexpectedly
Error Number: -2147467259 (0x80004005).
Error Description: Unspecified error
HTTP Error 500 - Server Error.
Internet Information Services (IIS)
I did not do anything special with the PHP. It is the zip 5.2.5 from the site. I configured php.ini and move it to c:/windows. I granted IUSR permission on php-cgi.exe

Am I missing something? I followed the guide here

Windows 2003 / IIS6 / PHP 5.2.5

Host Once - Where In The World Is My Server?

Sep 30, 2008

I have been running a dedicated server for years, first with Carolina Online, who then sold it to HostOnce.

Today at around 6PM my server, that was working fine and I was actively working on all day, suddenly disappears off the Internet.

I go to Host Once's ticket system, and they have a message up that they moved their servers from NC to NJ, that all the servers were upgraded to Windows 2003, and that they would be very busy with the migration, don't submit multiple tickets. (Host Once seems to mostly have reseller hosting accounts, not many dedicated servers.)

I start pinging IP addresses and everything in my server's IP block is gone (the furthest a tracert goes is - everything under that is gone.)

This is bad.

I'm worried that they may have bought new boxes in NJ for their reseller accounts, transferred up the data, and abandoned the old boxes in NC ... is this something they might do?

Also worried that the block of IPs their old servers were on may have somehow been reassigned... can this happen?

In any case, waiting to hear back on my ticket but looking for advice. Does anyone know the datacenter Carolina Online / Host Once used in Lumberton, NC? Want to start tracking it down if my box may have been left behind.... Any other insight on what in the world they might be doing / what happenned here?

100Mbit+ Unmetered - Anywhere In The World

Jun 22, 2008

Can someone give me a good list of providers like fdc, ovh, etc.

Bandwidth quality not much of an issue, quantity means more than quality to us, cogent only networks are even acceptable

We need more than one, as we need servers all over the world.

Edit: 100Mbit with unlimited or VERY high bandwith limits minimum.

Edit 2: Looking for something similar to fdc and ovh in price if possible. Going over 500/mo is pushing the budget on these, although specs do need to be taken into consideration.

Real World Testing

Feb 25, 2007

We have recently moved to a new datacenter and I was wondering if anyone on these forums could provide their experiences with "real-world" testing.

Upon move-in, we had a few issues. Obviously now the executives in the organization I work for are looking for justification for moving to the new colo.

software, or an online service that will stress test our current setup? Obviously I have MRTG, Awstats, and a few other of the most well known polling packages installed and working correctly, but what does everyone else use for stress testing?

Apache :: How To Access Server From Outside World

Aug 16, 2014

I have a local network with modem, router, and several computers either Cat5 to router or via wireless. Router is Cisco Linksys E4200. The internal IP for this router would be of the computers has Ubuntu Server 14.04 (32-bit) and Apache 2 installed, and this is hardwired (Cat5) to the router. This computer also has a STATIC IP address that we will call my Windows 7 Ultimate computer, I can open a browser and type "" and the Apache 2 Ubuntu Default Page will pop up telling me that "It works!".

I have the Apache server working since I can access from within my LAN.My problem is to get it to show me the same "It Works!" when I try to access from the Internet.I got my 'external IP' address by simply going to, and I can also see it from within my router settings.

The next thing I did was to setup Port Forwarding inside the router, to point say 50505 to I've tried lots of port numbers.I cannot see my Apache 2 Default page by typing in my browser "", for example. This assumes is my external IP and 50505 is the port I am forwarding.

I've tried disabling the IP4 firewall within the router, and even the "anonymous" filter request setting.I can find my web-server via browser in-house, but I cannot access from my external IP as if I were at a different location.

Data Centre List - World Wide

Jul 17, 2007

I have been playing with the idea now for a while to create a site that will list all the data centres (datacenters for you americans) in the world.

Obviously I do not have the definitive list, so it would be community based, where users can add DC's and reviews can be written for it...


1. Is there a website doing this already?

2. Would it be used...?

It seems quite a clever but simple idea - remove a lot of the oxygen from the air to help reduce the risk of fire. What do those of you operating your own facilities make of this? Is anyone already doing this?

I was wondering whether anyone can help me, I'm having some major performance problems running PHP on IIS using Shane Caraveo's php_fcgi.dll

PHP: 5.1.1.
IIS: 6

Basically I'm getting to the point where the isapi requests jump rapidly to 400+ requests from a meagre 2 -5 requests. Given the high number of requests this is essentially bringing the server to a standstill.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can begin getting to the bottom of this either through network monitoring or application debugging?

I have already compiled PHP with --enabled-fastcgi. What I ca't figure out is what to put in my .htaccess file.

Almost every tutorial on this compes up with a different way and none of these seem to work for me.

Mod_php Vs. Fastcgi

Jul 6, 2009

I'm looking at optimizing our dynamic content delivery process and there are some interesting claims regarding fastcgi vs. mod_php.

What I am wondering about is assuming apache serving ONLY php content, why would fastcgi perform any better than mod_php? The memory footprint of spawned workers exists in both solutions.

Wouldn't context switches and buffering in fastcgi actually lower performance?

What could be gained by using a different web server (nginx/lighty) ? The primary bottleneck would still be physical memory (assuming <255 workers) ?

PHP 5.25 And Microsoft FastCGI

Dec 7, 2007

I've already posted this over at the vBulletin forums and with their tech support team, but so far no one has been able to find a solution. Someone suggested I post here as well.

I am currently running vB using PHP 4.3.9 with Zend WinEnabler on a windows 2003 server. I have a seperate database server and a web server. This current configuration works fine, but I am moving to an upgraded web server and this is where the problems start.

Due to intermitant issues with Zend WinEnabler (now a discontinued product) I wanted to move to the latest version of PHP (5.2.5 NTS) and Microsoft FastCGI. The problem is that I am getting blank pages when clicking the Today's Post link from the top menu and immediately following the submission of a new post. I've gone through all of the vBulletin listed suggestions about trouble shooting blank pages and none apply.

Because I have a seperate database sever, I am accessing the same database with the new server vB configuration I am migrating to. As such I suspect the issue has to be related to web server given there are no issues on the current live site and the only changes are the PHP version and acceleration app.

If anyone has some suggestions, please let me know. I am running out of time on my server migration window before I am going to be billed for two servers.

Security Implications Of FastCGI

Jan 31, 2008

I recently changed one of my development servers from suPHP to FastCGI. I will admit, FastCGI is much quicker at PHP page generation and the system seems much more responsive.

However, I am looking into how FastCGI differs from suPHP in terms of security. Both run as a form of CGI outside of Apache itself -- which in theory is more secure. However, suPHP prevented users from setting insecure permissions (for instance, the max for files was 644, and for folders it was 755) -- something which FastCGI does not appear to do (although it could due to how it runs as a user).

Does anyone have any comments on this? Is there a way to force these same restrictions via FastCGI?

Also, any other comments in regards to the security of FastCGI vs. suPHP? I have run numerous searches and I don't seem to be able to find much. Google just returns a bunch of providers whose 'customers' are celebrating due to the provider choosing to implement FastCGI.

PHP As Apache Module Or As FastCGI

Jan 22, 2007

I have a server running Apache 2 with PHP as an Apache module. There are a few php scripts that use lots of cpu when they run and have lots of hits, but Apache is still running fine and pages and php scripts load pretty fast. I was just wondering if running PHP as fastcgi would use less cpu or make php scripts load faster.
