+README for Plack FCGI interface for LedgerSMB
+WARNING: Plack support for LedgerSMB is still designated as "expermental" which
+means that it may have bugs not found in the core distribution. Serious bugs in
+this area were fixed as recently as 1.3.25. Use at your own risk. In addition,
+persistant code environments are more sensitive generally than the CGI
+environments and when the script dies one does not always get a helpful error.
+In particular, blank, white screens are typical of the software exiting before
+the standard output is returned to the web server. There have been cases (which
+have been corrected) which caused these kinds of errors under plack only.
+This addon provides an app.psgi for LedgerSMB which allows you to properly run
+servelets as fcgi scripts instead of as CGI scripts. This makes LedgerSMB
+significantly more responsive but performance is more difficult to manage under
+The current module preloads a fair number of modules and then runs a
+fork/wait/execute loop where the less safe code is run. This performs well on
+platforms which provide copy on write functionality, but may not perform as well
+on Windows. The startup overhead for the dependencies is thus limited in this
+case to a one-time load on starting the servelet. Tests suggest that this
+eliminates 2/3 or more of the startup overhead.
+This module has been tested on fcgi backends but has not been tested on other
+backends. I know of no reason it shouldn't work on starlet and other backends,
+so if it works for you, please let us know.
+The preloads are all set in the app.psgi. You can adjust them there. Note that
+preloaded modules are not reloaded when altered so you will have to restart the
+fcgi daemon if you change the preloads. One solution is that for a performance
+cost you can comment out a preload, and restart the daemon when working on a
+Currently this will preload configuration settings so changes to the
+ledgersmb.conf will require a restart.
+By default this currently starts up to 10 processes. This number can be
+To run the servelet, you will need to run the following from a startup script
+plackup -s FCGI -D --listen /var/run/httpd/fastcgi/lsmb.sock
+We have also packaged a few utilities here that are helpful, and these are
+included in the tools/system directory. These include lsmbstart and lsmbstop,
+both bash scripts designed to start and stop the fcgi processes. We also
+include ledgersmb.service which is a systemd config file for systemd systems
+(including Fedora) to use in starting/stopping the service. A Sys V init script
+is not currently included but that is likely to be in future versions
