How to Enable PHP FastCGI

Summary

FastCGI is a web server interface that runs applications in processes separate from the core web server. This allows the server to handle more web page requests at once, resulting in improved application performance. FastCGI is ideal for systems with one or two busy websites; however for cPanel servers, FastCGI can be more harmful than beneficial since cPanel only has one available implementation of FastCGI - mod_fcgid; this implementation processes only one request at a time and can lead to more frequent and longer timeouts.

How to Enable PHP FastCGI

  1. Login to your FastDomain control panel and click PHP Config.
  2. Select PHP7.
  3. Click Save Changes.
