FastCGI Spec

Since is not available anymore, I (fbbdev) created this repository and linked website to host the FastCGI Spec.


This repository contains two version of the specification:

  • The original version from, pulled from the Wayback Machine archive, at original/spec.html

  • A markdown version, manually converted from the original, at Text and most formatting in this version is identical to the original, the only exception being the References section: there, after the original text, a subsection has been added with live links to updated sources.

Visit the website to read a nicely formatted version of the spec.
