Fastcgi and wordpress

Hi. This is my first post here :smiley:

My issue is about enabling fastcgi module in wordpress according this wiki ling:
it doesn’t work (error 500). I have done it a lot of times but i think it is about that module or the .htaccess

Can anyone help me??

The script php5-wrapper.fcgi (executable) is:

exec /dh/cgi-system/php5.cgi

And the .htaccess is:

Options ExecCGI
AddHandler fastcgi-script fcg fcgi fpl
AddHandler php5-fastcgi .php
Action php5-fastcgi /php5-wrapper.fcgi

BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /blog/ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L] # END WordPress

(between Options and ExecCGI
there is a (plus)

Thanks, do you know what is wrong? I want to enable it to have a lower CPU consumption

That line with Options +ExecCGI AddHandler fastcgi-script fcg fcgi fpl
needs to be split:

Options +ExecCGI AddHandler fastcgi-script fcg fcgi fpl …all the rest

That should fix it.


Sorry. It is mistake i have had here. It is splitted in the .htaccess

I have WordPress running with PHP5 FastCGI and it’s not giving me any errors. My files look like yours. But I found this discussion:


Oh yeah, and if you want to lower CPU consumption, which gets you a faster site, enable WP-Cache in your WP Admin Plugins panel.


No. It makes slower my site. I have just disabled wp-cache.
I prefer using fast-cgi for a better performance

Thanks. But, i use Wordpress 2.2 and if possible it hurt my DB. I am going to see the content of this plugin to watch what it does.

I have checked the php plugin and it is ok. I am going to try it tomorrow. Thanks

I’m also running WordPress 2.2 (from the One-Click install).

Uh, in Manage Domains from the DreamHost control panel, do you have FastCGI Support turned on? It’s not on by default.


This must be a issue in fast-cgi module in my hosting :@
Thanks everybody

Or maybe it’s this glitch:
