in thread CGI or CGI::Fast

I ran a small test on the server using "CGI::Fast qw(:standard);", the page was correctly displayed. So I assume that means FCGI is installed?

    Below FCGI lives the actual Fast CGI engine in your server. I do not know what FCGI does when there is no such engine in the server. Anything between degrading gracefully to the "normal" CGI protocol and crashing loudly is possible.

    Ask your sysadmin if he has mod_fastcgi (when your server is Apache) active in your (virtual) server.

      Ah I see. So even if the script runs with "CGI::Fast", it doesn't mean that mod_fastcgi is installed?

      Is there a variable from CGI::Fast that one can use for testing the presence or absence of the engine?

        Honestly, I do not know. I do not have a mod_fastcgi enabled Apache server running here now.

        Try your friendly sysadmin.
