also along with it? I am not able to understand the working functionality
of the two in depth. Could someone please elaborate on the same .



Hi all,

I am trying to run a fast CGI program on apache using fcgistarter. I am
running the following command-

if this is working properly?


Using redis for caching Apache requests


I am trying to cache the requests coming on my Apache web server using the
mod_socache_redis module. After loading the module, I am sending a request
from Apache to my redis server in the following format-
SSLSessionCache redis://localhost:4321
4321 is the port on which the redis server has started.
However when I am checking the status of my redis server, there is no
update of the apache requests. Can anyone please guide me on how to go
about this? Particularly on how to set my request values onto the redis
cache directly from Apache.
