 From an Ubuntu 8.04 LTS server (Debian based):

# /usr/bin/php-cgi -q -b unix:/tmp/php-fastcgi
Cannot bind/listen socket - [2] No such file or directory.
Couldn't create FastCGI listen socket on port unix:/tmp/php-fastcgi

Doing a touch /tmp/php-fastcgi before issuing the command has no effect

reference material. Thank you.
