When I try an app under fcgi, it simply displays the dispatch.fcgi file.

Any ideas why this happens. I've checked my installs, configs, etc. ad

You need to make the file executable (chmod a+x dispatch.fcgi).

Thanks for the response. It's already chmod 755 and still just displays
the file.

Sounds like your web server still doesn't recognize the .fcgi extension
something it should run, not merely display.

If you're on apache, make sure the fcgi module is loaded and you have a
matching addhandler for .fcgi.
