    I'm trying to get moinmoin set up with litespeed fastcgi.

    In the litespeed admin console, I added a fastcgi external
    app pointed at moinmoin's moin.fcg, and an associated
    context, basically following the instructions from

    After restarting litespeed, I get "500 Internal Server
    Error" when I attempt to access moinmoin. Looking at the
    litespeed logs, I see messages like

    [] Handler with type id [8202896] is not implemented.

    I don't see anything in error_lsws.log, or anything
    interesting in access_lsws.log.

    Looking at the process list, it appears that moin.fcg isn't
    getting started (or dies immediately).

    I appreciate any suggestions.

    Thanks much,

    Still digging ...

    Got the idea from another thread of wrapping the fcgi script in a shell script
    like this

    strace -o strace.log ./
    When I hit the web page, no strace.log gets created.

    In fact, as far as I can see, the UDS socket file isn't being created. Unless it gets created and disappears before I can catch it.

    The error message is strange, can you please post your external app configuration and context configuration?

    I know that it's redhat -- I don't know which version.
    The LSWS version is 3.2. This is a new site I'm setting up
    at WebFaction.

    Update: iaihmb sent me a video showing how to set up moinmoin with litespeed at WebFaction. I haven't gone through the steps myself, yet (I need an account upgrade first), but it looks pretty straightforward.

    The main difference is that solution he shows has moinmoin listening on a specified port (like the moinmoin fastcgi directions for Windows or lighttpd), rather than connecting over a uds socket.

    Please make sure your python script can be started successfully from command.

    The jon.fcgi package might be outdated, I failed to run it with Python2.5, maybe you should try the fcgi module in flup package.

    It should not matter that TCP socket or Unix socket was used.
