FastCGI 1.5 for IIS6 & 5.1 is RTW January 20th, 2010

Vinod Kumar

Wanted to update that the FastCGI module v1.5 has been released for IIS 6 and IIS 5.1. A lot more details can be got from Ruslan’s blog on this release:

Fast CGI Forum with announcement and where to send folks with technical questions:

Some fast features. See blog post for the details –

  • Monitor changes to a file (php.ini as an example). Will recycle FastCGI processes for the process pool.
  • Real-time tuning of MaxInstances setting. Set by default now.
  • STDERR stream handling.
  • Sending a termination signal to FastCGI processes for cleaner shutdowns.
  • _FCGI_X_PIPE_ environment variable for communication between the extension and FastCGI process.
  • Relaxed enforcement of response headers syntax.
  • Per-application FastCGI process pools. Allows for two different PHP version used for different applications within the same web site.
  • Using UTF-8 encoding for server variable values.
  • More descriptive error messages
  • Changes in default values for configuration settings.

Have fun …
