 h2. Why you should use spawn-fcgi instead of something else 

 * Privilege separation without needing a suid-binary or running a server as root. 
 * You can restart your web server and the FastCGI applications without restarting the others. 
 * You can run them in different chroot()s. 
 * Running your FastCGI applications doesn’t depend on the web server you are running, which allows for easier testing of/migration to other web servers. 

 h2. Building 

 * [[Build|Build from normal releases/snapshots]] 
 * [[SVN|Build from SVN]] 

 h2. Usage 

 * [[Basic Ideas]] 
 * Example run scripts for daemontools or runit: source:/trunk/doc/ 

 h2. Known issues 

 * Windows: doesn't work with "native" (i.e. not cygwin) binaries.
