    Hi, I'm trying to speed up the perl apps on my VPS (my stats program and a blog install that uses perl)... and i've installed the Microsoft FastCGI extension: http://www.iis.net/download/FastCGI and this perl module: http://search.cpan.org/~cosmicnet/FCGI-IIS/lib/FCGI/IIS.pm

    I've found instructions for getting it to work with Perl (ActivePerl in my case):
    http://www.cosmicscripts.com/servers/fastcgi_perl.html

    i followed all the directions to a T. In -MFCGI::IIS=test mode, the test script works great, but as soon as i change it to 'do' mode or 'eval' mode i just get a blank page. what is going wrong? has anyone else gotten this work?

    these are the instruction

    thanks!

    I have always done just php in fastcgi, not perl, so no firsthand experience, I will see if I can find anything on this matter.

    I haven't gotten it to work but not had time to spend more than 10 min on it, every moment I even try to rest something happens!

    I only got it working in IIS7.5 with Server 2008 R2 in Hyper-V like this:

    I didn't get it going properly (errors) in 2003, and virtuozzo I've pretty much given up on to be honest.
