Python as FastCGI under windows and apache


I need to run a simple request/response python module under an existing system with windows/apache/FastCGI.

All the FastCGI wrappers for python I tried work for Linux only (they use socket.fromfd() and other such shticks).

Is there a wrapper that runs under windows?


You might find it easier to ditch FastCGI altogether and just run a python webserver on a localhost port. Then just use mod_rewrite to map the apache urls to the internal webserver.

(I started offering FastCGI at my hosting company and to my surprise, nearly everyone ditched it in favor of just running their own web server on the ports I provided them.)

I'd suggest mod_python or mod_wsgi.

A Django bug suggests that python-fastcgi will work for you, and its PyPI page reports that it works on Windows.
