FastCGI for PHP

PHP is an excellent powerful scripting language that has been around in the Unix Worlds. With its advent to Windows World due to threading implementations, PHP installers recommend running it as CGI process for safety of the webserver. However the downside of CGI is that each request spawns a unique process and hence more memory is consumed thus slowing down the web server.

Fortunately, there are two implementations of FastCGI for PHP, the URLs of which I would like to share with other readers.

  1. Caraveo Opensource FastCGI for PHP/Perl
  2. Technical Preview of FastCGI for IIS 6.0 from IIS.NET
