Deployment with FastCGI

Modify /etc/init.d/apache2 to enable fastcgi:


Enable ExecCGI for the location where you wish to install the examples:

<Location /wt-examples>
    Options ExecCGI
    Allow from All

To install a particular example:

# cd build/examples/composer
# ./

And list the path in /etc/apache2/modules.d/20_mod_fastcgi.conf:

FastCgiServer /var/www/localhost/htdocs/wt-examples/composer/composer.wt -idle-timeout 120 -processes 1

Finally, restart your apache, and check your log files for problems !

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
