Running Movable Type on OS X with FastCGI - Neil Turner's blog

Thanks for this Neil - very helpful.

I had one problem. When installing mod_fastcgi I got an error “cp: No such file or directory”. So I followed the instructions with the download and did this instead:

cp Makefile.AP2 Makefile
make top_dir=/usr/share/httpd
sudo make install top_dir=/usr/share/httpd

/usr/share/httpd is where my apache2 stuff is — I’m not sure if this is standard on OS X or not.

I also seemed to have to uncomment this line:

#LoadModule fastcgi_module libexec/apache2/

in /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf or else I got Internal Server Errors.

I think it works now — there are no errors and Apache says “mod_fastcgi/2.4.6 configured” when starting up — but MT seems no quicker, so I’m not entirely convinced!

Commenting is turned off on this blog.
