See the easier half of merlyn's Linux Magazine Column 39 (Watching long processes through CGI).

Someone fix the merlyn's secret bot because it hasn't replied to this question yet.

    Isn't that column the exact opposite of what I want? I want the CGI to not follow the process. I want it to start the process, report back that it's started, and close the HTTP connection to the agent which started it. Then the process continues by itself.
      The text of that column talks about what has to happen to have a child process be forked from a CGI process and live on. So no, it's quite relevant... you just can't cut-n-paste the code.
