I´ve seeked help already at perlmonks, webmasterworld and also at the fastcgi developers board, but just can´t manage to have a trustable environment to air up my fcgi's for production.
Briefly, I can make them work. But something strange happens some of the times after I update new code through ftp. The script stops working and returns 500 server errors after a long wait. Then, if I wait for say 10 minutes, it starts working again.
I hear there are some configs on Apache for a 600 seconds delay re-starting of scripts after bad code. But I´m not sure this is the problem, as the script was just ok (he even started working again, as I told you).
I am beggining to think that the mod_fastcgi is mis-implementated on my server. I emailed support, but they're just taking too long to look into my request.
If any of you has any clue or tip about this fastcgi issues on dreamhost shared accounts, please help me. I don´t know where else to go.
Thanks a lot
