    Hey, guys

    My question is simple: any good reason to enable FastCGI for the domain where I have WPMU?
    Will this improve performance?

    Dunno.

    Andy and I were playing with eaccelerator, and that did help.

    Only reason that I can come up with is if you were running php as a cgi script. I know some platforms do that for some strange reason instead of running php as a apache module.

    Or if you're not running Apache :)

    tdjcbe, I know PLENTY of reasons to run PHP in CGI mode instead of Apache module :)

    We run PHP in CGI mode on all our servers. Yes, this consumes more server resources, but it's worse it, believe me...

    Well, the reason I have asked about enabling FastCGI. There's always kinda law: faster WPMU -> higher load on server, isn't it?

    Didn't play with eaccelerator yet, I'm improving my WPMU using common tools: playing around with PHP/Apache/MySQL settings.
