spawn-fcgi

spawn-fcgi is a little helper program to spawn fastcgi processes. It binds them to a socket (either Unix-domain or TCP) and configures the environment by switching the user and group, using chroot, daemonizing, and using chmod and chown on Unix-domain sockets. The spawned backends can then be used from Web servers like lighttpd, nginx, or cherokee.

          Release Notes: There were some small fixes and features plus one important feature: new options to chown/chmod the Unix domain socket. This allows easier privilege separation (spawning a process as a Web user but having the Web server own the socket).
