Apache mod_fcgid

mod_fcgid is the Fast CGI module from Apache. It can be used to run CGI programs, such as php-fpm or php-cgi. It is not included with Apache, and must be downloaded and installed separately.

The program uses apxs to find the Apache build system configuration. You can override the default location of the program with the APXS environment variable:

APXS=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs ./configure.apxs

Build and installation is simple:

make install


When building mod_fcgid against the native installation of Apache, the link for the gcc compiler has changed, and a symlink will need to be made. I haven't found any way to be able to override the values set by apxs, so this will have to do:

ln -s /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/OSX10.9.xctoolchain
