    Hi,

    After running a website for the past couple of years on Enterprise Linux 3.x with apache 1.x, perl and fastcgi we have recently upgraded to ES4 which uses apache 2.x. We are now experiencing 'problems' with fastcgi and apache 2.x thus we are looking for a reasonable alternative.

    I have recently installed LiteSpeed on my server (as non-root) and bound it to port :8088. Static content and normal perl/cgi's work fine. I am running into difficulty attempting to get perl/fastcgi working.

    I keep getting a very strange MIME type error as follows:

    Any ideas what the cause could be? I can include my conf files if need be.

    Thanks!

    Have you created a FCGI context with URI /helloworld.fpl using the helloworld.fpl fcgi application? It will not work if you only add a script handler for .fpl.

    Added context but still no success...

    Mistwang - I have added a context as suggested with no luck. So far I have done the following:

    1. Added a vhost "LiteSpeed"
    2. Added an ExternalApp (Fast CGI App) to the vhost
    3. Added a Context to the vhost with a URI of "/helloworld.fpl"


    I get the following error:

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Your "MyfastCGI" has not been configured properly, <autoStart> set to 1, but the path to the fastcgi application has not been given, you should got some error message during server startup. As the FastCGI has not been configured properly, access to the FCGI context is denied.
