I request that mod_fcgid (Module Identifer: fcgid_module) is added to Uniform Server ZeroXI apache module.


Strangely, Uniform Server Zero XI includes proxy_fcgi_module modules/mod_proxy_fcgi.so

and I am a little confused as to why httpd.conf includes;

# FastCGI Module configuration
<IfModule fcgid_module>
Include conf/extra/httpd-fcgid.conf

# Proxy Html Module configuration
<IfModule proxy_html_module>
Include conf/extra/httpd-fcgid.conf

when there is no conf/extra/httpd-fcgid.conf file included in the Uniform Server ZeroXI apache module ZeroXI_apache_2_4_6_a.exe.

I am in the process of trying to add mod_fcgid to my Uniform Server ZeroXI by using the Windows binaries available from http://www.apachelounge.com/download/

Why is this important to me?

Because I use Uniform Server to create a development environment on my desktop Windows PC that is as close as possible to the configuration of my web hosting service, which in most cases is Bluehost, and which I nomally configure with FastCGI for PHP for the performance reasons stated.

Also note that mod_fcgid is recommended in the Joomla! v3.x installation hosting requirements.

Although this request is old! Recently there have been several requests for fcgid.

Uniform Server 11.3.2-ZeroXI now provides support for fcgid see documentation for details.


All the best
