Re: Fastcgi disconnect - anyone know if this is 'good'?

Surely a better method is to fork() a process to churn the query, then return HTTP 200 to say "ok, received"? I also experimented with forking and killing the parent process, unfortunatly it's a no go when using mod_php + apache. Only cgi's will succesfully break the connection. Another d...

Re: Fastcgi disconnect - anyone know if this is 'good'?

Re: What is the best Linux distribution?

There is no such thing, as "the best distro". It depends on your needs. For example, Ubuntu devs do a really good job and I appreciate their product, but personally, I use Arch Linux and I can't imagine chaning it to anything else. And for servers, I'd choose yet another distro. QFT. I'm ...
