FreeBSD Bugzilla – Bug 89924
mod_fcgid port description improperly says suEXEC not supported
Last modified: 2005-12-16 10:40:05 UTC
mod_fcgid port was recently updated to new upstream verion 1.07.
But the mod_fcgid port description incorrectly states that suEXEC is not supported.
Actually, mod_fcgid started supporting suEXEC in August 2004 so it would be appreciated if the description is fixed as soon as possible because it may have been driving away potential users.
Please replace the following in the port description.
"The bad news is that it does not currently support suEXEC, and the
good news is that it has PHP support."
"mod_fcgid is binary-compatible with mod_fastcgi so your existing fastcgi programs do not need to be recompiled. mod_fcgid is actively maintained and started supporting suEXEC in version 0.87 (Aug 26, 2004)."
Awaiting maintainers feedback

Looks good to me. Not in patch form, but it's not a hard update. If you want a
diff I can make the change and provide one.

If your sysadmin's not being fascist, you're paying him too much.
