Problems with fastCGI PHP Ubuntu 14.04 enabling

I tried to enable FastCGI PHP as per this post:

No luck. Could not enable the fastCGI.

phpinfo still shows: Server API Apache 2.0 Handler

But there is error that apache reports:

AH00526: Syntax error on line 4 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/fastcgi.conf: FastCgiIpcDir /var/lib/apache2/fastcgi: access for server (uid 1000, gid 1000) failed: write not allowed

The folder /var/lib/apache2/fastcgi the owner is www-data:www-data

Any ideas?
