python fastcgi nginx

1) To start...do not give be a link to a page unless you have done this your self nad willing to walk though unclear explanations.
2) Experience with nginx and python

I want to use fastcgi with python

not Django
not web.py
not Turbo gears.

Just a simple good old fashion cgi that prints out "Hello World"

Must have experience with python and fastcgi. and use best practice.

Thanks

Do you have a particular FastCGI python implementation in mind?  The newer python FastCGI implementations are WSGI compliant and expect a WSGI model app (http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0333/).

Here's a barebones example nginx server config block which hands off any request coming in on port 80 to a fastcgi service running on localhost:9995.
server {
        listen 80;
        server_name  localhost;

        location / {
           fastcgi_pass localhost:9995;
           include fastcgi_params;

        }
    }

Here's an example of a FastCGI WSGI compliant HelloWorld app running on localhost:9995.  It uses flup to provide the FastCGI layer and WSGI compliant server.  If you have a different FastCGI implementation in mind, let us know which you want to use.
from flup.server.fcgi import WSGIServer
import cgi

def mycgi(environ, start_response):
    start_response('200 OK', [('Content-type', 'text/html')])
    form = cgi.FieldStorage( fp=environ["wsgi.input"], environ=environ)
    name = form.getfirst("name","World")
    out = "<html><body>Hello %s!</body></html>" % name
    return (out)

WSGIServer(mycgi, bindAddress=("127.0.0.1",9995)).run()
