Fedora Update Notification
2008-01-29 04:52:36

Name        : mod_fcgid
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.2
Release     : 3.fc7
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.
