NAME

Jifty::Script::FastCGI - A FastCGI server for your Jifty application

DESCRIPTION

When you're ready to move up to something that can handle the increasing load your new world-changing application is generating, you'll need something a bit heavier-duty than the pure-perl Jifty standalone server. FastCGI is what you're looking for.

Because Apache's FastCGI dispatcher can't pass commandline flags to your script, you'll need to call jifty a bit differently:

 AddHandler fastcgi-script fcgi
 DocumentRoot /path/to/your/jifty/app/web/templates
 FastCgiServer /path/to/your/jifty/app/bin/jifty -initial-env JIFTY_COMMAND=fastcgi
 ScriptAlias /  /path/to/your/jifty/app/bin/jifty/

For lighttpd (http://www.lighttpd.net/), use this setting:

 server.modules  = ( "mod_fastcgi" )
 server.document-root = "/path/to/your/jifty/app/web/templates"
 fastcgi.server = (
        "" => (
            "your_jifty_app" => (
                "socket"       => "/tmp/your_jifty_app.socket",
                "check-local"  => "disable",
                "bin-path"     => "/path/to/your/jifty/app/bin/jifty",
                "bin-environment" => ( "JIFTY_COMMAND" => "fastcgi" ),
                "min-procs"    => 1,
                "max-procs"    => 5,
                "max-load-per-proc" => 1,
                "idle-timeout" => 20,
            )
        )
    )

run

Creates a new FastCGI process.
