 mod_fcgid unfairly described
Author: AnonyBsd

Hi,

The latest version of mod_fcgid is version 1.06 (Apr 27, 2005) and has supported suexec in several prior versions.

The description of the port incorrectly states:

"The bad news is that it does not currently support suEXEC"

Please update the port with and correct the description. Although users can safely use the other package, mod_fastcgi, with Apache1--there are reported memory corruption problems with mod_fastcgi and Apache2 (google it if needed). Thus, it is important for mod_fcgid to be updated so that users of Apache2 on FreeBSD can benefit from an actively maintained solution.

As you can see at http://www.freshports.org/www/mod_fcgid/, there is no maintainer for this port. You can always submit a patch. You can do this via the web http://www.freebsd.org/send-pr.html or using send-pr on your computer.

As you can see at http://www.freshports.org/www/mod_fcgid/, the maintainer was removed after the forum post.

I cannot submit a patch because I no longer have access to FreeBSD. I'm running Debian 3.1 until FreeBSD 6.x has most (not even all) of the ports I require on my servers.

If you or another person with access to FreeBSD can take over as maintainer of mod_fcgid, it would be beneficial.

mod_fcgid version in ports is outdated by over a year, and the project is gaining popularity due to people finally switching to Apache2 and also trying out Ruby-on-Rails since mod_fcgid is more stable than mod_fastcgi on Apache2 (at least on Linux with worker MPM).

True. I don't think the two events are related.

FYI: if you disagree with the description, you don't need FreeBSD to submit a patch. Try the web interface: http://www.freebsd.org/send-pr.html

People take over maintainership when interested. I don't use the port. I'm not interested. :)

All it takes is interest.
