Fastcgi: connection refused: Fastcgi: failed to connect to s

I have Apache 1.3 compiled with mod_fastcgi. It was working fine with
rails for a long time. Now it will run for about 20 minutes and then
shuts down with the above error.

Anyone run into this.


I think I found the problem.

My hosting provider added a tmpwatch routine to keep track of the /tmp
folder. It looks like it was clobbering the fcgi_ipc directory

I moved the folder out /tmp and everything is running fine.


There was another little app called killnobody. dispatch.fcgi was
running as nobody. Added /usr/local/bin/ruby to the exclusion list of
the killnobody script.
