Problems with fastCGI PHP Ubuntu 14.04 enabling

Posted October 2, 2014 12.2k views

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?

can you post your fastcgi.conf file?

  • <IfModule mod_fastcgi.c>
      AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi
      #FastCgiWrapper /usr/lib/apache2/suexec
      FastCgiIpcDir /var/lib/apache2/fastcgi

Change the ownership of /var/lib/apache2/fastcgi of owner of apache user
