Just recently, we began testing out SCGI with Lighttpd. We were running into weird problems with FCGI and both Apache and Lighttpd… things like fcgi processes that would get spawned and just hang around after the apache or lighttpd processes were killed. We have a few cron scripts that try to play cleanup… but that isn’t a long-term solution.

So, we took the plunge on a few client projects for their demos and I am happy to report that it took maybe 15 minutes to read the documentation and get things going.

I have a new friend and scgi_ctrl is it’s name.

It’s only a matter of time before we work on an rbot plugin so that we can reload our applications via IRC. :-)
