How to ensure a CGI process completes?
Posted on 1997-04-20
I'm using a Perl program to interface with a flat text database. All works great 99.9% of the time.
The problem is that if a user loses their connection to our server during the "writing back to disk" phase of the software the CGI task is terminated. This causes the data on disk to be chopped off.
We are running under Apache 1.2b7...Is there any way to ensure that a CGI task will finish once it is started, or perhaps a modified CGI handler for Apache that won't stop a task when a connection is lost?
