    Can AE run on FastCGI?
    David, can AE run on FastCGI? If so, does anyone have any stats on how much that improves performance?

    Thanks.

    No. None of our scripts supports FastCGI. They uses regular cgi-bin.

    Any chance that you could include this in a future release? From what I read, it can improve performance by a factor of three or more. That might make it possible to run a busy AE site on a shared host.

    By the way, I emailed the hosting company you link to on your site, asking them to contact me, but they never responded. Any other recommended shared hosts? I want to try to reduce my costs from my present dedicated server.

    Our own servers do not support FastCGI so we currently are not developing with it. Can you recommend a shared hosting company that does support FastCGI? Some development work is required to make a script work with FastCGI. Also, do a lot of hosting companies support FastCGI or is it still rare?

    Post and ask other AE users what shared hosting they are using.

    I'm not in a position to recommend a shared host, simply because I don't use one - I'm on a dedicated server, having been shut down 1.5 years ago by a shared host because I (that is, AE) was using too much CPU. But a quick search on a search engine for "fastcgi hosting" turns up plenty of possibilities.

    AE users out there who are using shared hosting, how about it? Do you love your host? Tell us who they are, how well they support AE in general, and whether they offer FastCGI.
