How to install FastCGI on Ubuntu 14.04 with LAMP?

Hello.

What I have read, it's recommended to install FastCGI for optimizations.
I have the smallest droplet (512 MB) running Ubuntu LAMP on 14.04.

I followed this guide to setup hostnames: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-14-04-lts

I allso followed this guide to install redis since I will run WordPress sites:
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-redis-caching-to-speed-up-wordpress-on-ubuntu-14-04.

If it's recommended to install FastCGI, how can I do this easily?

Kind regards
Johan

I use Ubuntu 14.04 so I followed instructions made by user "jDawgg".
