Hi all,

Iam currently working on my configuration for using php with fcgi.
The php-fpm allows listening on a socket, so i wonder if yaws does support connecting to a fcgi server via socket. The documentation of the manual does only cover the host:port way.

Hi Daniel, sorry but I don't understand the question. Yaws always connects to an FCGI server listening for incoming socket connections -- specifying a hostname or IP address, along with a port number, is always how you connect. How else are you wanting to connect? Can you provide an example, or point me to an example on some website?

the part "List of pool directives" the first one "listen"

The address on which to accept FastCGI requests. Valid syntaxes are: 'ip.add.re.ss:port', 'port', '/path/to/unix/socket'. This option is mandatory for each pool.

does this help?

Yes, thanks Daniel, that does help. I guess you're asking if Yaws FCGI support can handle UNIX domain sockets? If so, then no, at least not easily -- to the best of my knowledge Erlang supplies only an old experimental driver for UNIX domain sockets, and I don't know how well or even if it works as I've never used it. But I know Erlang drivers pretty well, so it might be possible to add such support, depending on how soon you're looking for it.

Thanks for looking at it.
Its not important for me, but would be a nice to have feature.
