From their web site:

FastCGI is a language independent, scalable, open extension to CGI that provides high performance without the limitations of server specific APIs.

Feedback, anyone?

Since my hosting service Dreamhost recently put me on "probation" for using excessive server resources for my TWiki sites, I'm interested in revisiting possible use of FastCGI (which Dreamhost offers by default) with TWiki. Anyone have any experience or thoughts about this? I've found one person's notes here about a partial effort in this direction.

It would be great to at least hack the view script to work with FastCGI but lacking any coding skills, I can't comment on how difficult this would be. Any feedback would be most welcome! I'd hate to think of TWiki becoming a "wiki non grata" on Dreamhost!

You might want to look at SpeedyCGI, which doesn't require code changes, and may now work with Dreamhost. Also, how about deploying the TWikiCacheAddOn, which should definitely speed things up?

Unfortunately we cannot install this package on our shared hosting servers. We currently have FastCGI support enabled, and I believe the appropriate perl modules to help you make use of it. Let us know if that is not the case and we will get them installed immediately.

I've emailed Dameon of http://www.phoneboy.com/bin/view.pl/Personal/TwikiAndFastCGI and AddFastCGISupport fame, it'd be nice to know whether he got it working.
