Apache 1.3 + remote FastCGI balancing

Cheers,

As I have a lot of stability problems with Lighttpd + FastCGI-Cluster I
wanted to test Apache 1.3 as most of the “big” sites like 43people or
BaseCamp run on it.

Every example I find only talks about lokal FastCGI processes and not
about remote ones and explains how the requests are balanced.

Are there any good examples out there and can Apache1.3/mod_fastcgi load
balance requests?

Thanks,
Jonathan

Nobody on Apache and multiple FastCGI processes?

i cant seem to get a simple answer either as to how you deploy a real 3
tier
infrastructure with rails. It seems fairly limited right now since
fast_cgi
needs to run with apache. What rails needs is what mod_jk is for
tomcat.

This is not true, with Lighttpd and its mod_fastcgi you can get a real
three tier infrastructure. Lighttpd serves as the web server, fastcgi as
the appserver (on local or remote machines) and you have the DB machine.

I’m asking for more info on the same thing with Apache and remote
fastcgi processes.
