What do you mean by "fcgi" here? Perl cgi files aren't able to
talk via the FastCGI protocol, you either have to change them to
use the FastCGI protocol (e.g. by using FCGI perl module), or need
some wrapper which will do fastcgi to cgi protocol conversion.
(Note well that spawn-fcgi isn't a fastcgi/cgi wrapper, it's just a
simple helper program to start multiple processes of a fastcgi
In theory fastcgi allows to pass errors from an application to
server via special FCGI_STDERR stream (and nginx will log such
errors into it's error log at 'error' level with "FastCGI sent in
stderr" prefix). Though in practice this requires fastcgi
application to properly redirect errors into the stream in
question, and this isn't always done properly.
