problem: my FCGI application (trianglewiki.org) running Python stop working two days ago out of the blue and I am trying my best to troubleshoot. I am not getting a response with my 2+ day open support ticket.
I started from from scratch using the instructions posted on the DH Support WIKI: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php?title=Python_FastCGI
Following the steps posted on the DH wiki, I can’t even get a “HELLO WORLD” to post via http. So is that DH’s evn. or me?
yes, when I execute ./default.fcgi with the example given on the DH support wiki I get:
WSGIServer: missing FastCGI param REQUEST_METHOD required by WSGI!
WSGIServer: missing FastCGI param SERVER_NAME required by WSGI!
WSGIServer: missing FastCGI param SERVER_PORT required by WSGI!
WSGIServer: missing FastCGI param SERVER_PROTOCOL required by WSGI!
Followed by a “hello world!”
If I try via the browser, I get a timed out 500 error. I have also noticed running “top” the python process dies right away or doesn’t appear at all when trying to access the default.fcgi test page.
