Fedora Update Notification

Name        : mod_fcgid
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 2.2
Release     : 3.fc8
URL         : http://fastcgi.coremail.cn/
Summary     : Apache2 module for high-performance server-side scripting
Description :
mod_fcgid is a binary-compatible alternative to the Apache module mod_fastcgi.
mod_fcgid has a new process management strategy, which concentrates on reducing
the number of fastcgi servers, and kicking out corrupt fastcgi servers as soon
as possible.

Update Information:

This update addresses some problems when running mod_fcgid with SELinux in
enforcing mode.    1. Improvements to the SELinux policy for dealing with
temporary files created and used by FastCGI applications (e.g. attachment
handling in moin).    2. Fixing a bug whereby httpd would occasionally fail to
restart due to being prevented (by SELinux) from removing the shared memory file
used for communication with mod_fcgid. As part of this fix, the shared memory
file now defaults to being in the /var/run/mod_fcgid directory rather than the
/var/run directory.

* Mon Jan 14 2008 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> 2.2-3
- Update SELinux policy to fix occasional failures on restarts
  (move shared memory file into /var/run/mod_fcgid directory)
* Thu Jan  3 2008 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> 2.2-2
- Update SELinux policy to support file transition to httpd_tmp_t for
  temporary files

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update mod_fcgid' at the command line.
