PHP-FastCGI?

I'm working on a webhost that seems to have an undocumented feature.

I inadvertently coded a link to "mydomain.com//" - with TWO
trailing slashes.

When I clicked the link, Apache returned this error:

-+-+-+-+-+-+
403 Forbidden
You don't have permission to access
/cgi-sys/php-fastcgi//index.php on this server.

You may need to create an index.html page or enable the
directory browsing by creating an .htaccess file containing
"Options +Indexes".
-+-+-+-+-+

I have a cgi-sys, but I have no idea what this "fastcgi" stuff
is about.

Anyone seen this before?

Or something in httpd.conf... What OS are you running?

Basically (and with a lot of oversimplification), it's plain old CGI
executable, but resident in memory, not loaded from disk at
every request and unloaded upon completion. For more
information, click around www.fastcgi.com...

Nope. One of my sites runs on a FastCGI installation (FreeBSD
+ Apache); accessing http://www.mysite.com// just gives me
/index.php...

Cheers,

I checked the web site (of course) and now I understand HOW it
works (residing in memory connection pooling) - but I swear,
after 15 minutes there I still can't figure out what features it
exposes.

I'm (mildy) concerned about having a CGI that I don't know what
it does.

What's particularly weird is how it reports that it resides in a
subdirectory of cgi-bin when I don't have any subdirectories in
CGI-bin.
