This has to do with the fact that YaBB doesn't use CGI.pm for anything other than processing attachments. A look at FastCGI indicates it's trying to speed up things YaBB doesn't use - CGI.pm's templating ability (which is deprecated anyway).<br /><br />(And with CGI.pm's templating being deprecated, people using that are being urged to move over to newer templating software such as Mojolicious or Plack.)<br /><br />All of that said, some sources concerning FastCGI appear to say it SHOULD speed things up. So I'll need to do some experimenting.<br /><br />But the real speed savings will come with saving things in 'real' databases.<br /><br /><br /> Test Zone - Moved: '[m by=60656C686F010 destboard=testsub1 dest=1551280355]: 'Att test'' https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1551280354/0#0 YaBB Development & Mods/Test Zone https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1551280354/0#0 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Wed, 27 Feb 2019 15:15:14 GMT <b>This <a href="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1551280402/0#0"><b>Topic</b></a> has been moved to</b> <a href="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?board=testsub1"><i><b>Test Sub</b></i></a><b> by <i>Dandello</i></b> Test Sub - Moved: 'Att test' https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1551280402/0#0 YaBB Development & Mods/Test Sub https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1551280402/0#0 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Wed, 27 Feb 2019 15:13:21 GMT <b>This <a href="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1551280355/0#0"><b>Topic</b></a> has been moved to</b> <a href="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?board=testsub1"><i><b>Test Sub</b></i></a><b> by <i>Dandello</i></b> YaBB News - Getting Closer on 2.7 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1551231877/0#0 YaBB Development & Mods/YaBB News https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1551231877/0#0 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Wed, 27 Feb 2019 01:44:37 GMT The 'final' version of 2.7 is getting closer.

(The downside, this checking appears to slow things down on loading - but the slowness could also be my internet connection.)<br /><br />Ideally all paths to files to be opened should also be cleaned but YaBB's mechanism for opening and closing files is really complex and convoluted.  <img rel="[smiley=wallbash.gif]" src="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wallbash.gif" alt="Smiley" title="wallbash" /> YaBB 2.7 Issues - Error "Assuming NOT a POSIX class" https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1541181806/20#20 YaBB Development & Mods/YaBB 2.7 Issues https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1541181806/20#20 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Thu, 15 Nov 2018 00:22:54 GMT Both the corrected YaBBC AND a version of YaBB 2.7 that doesn't use any './' and so doesn't need the work around. (It uses a safer workaround.) Note the 2.7 will not be able to use './'  in Paths.pm but will need the full directory path instead for those places that used to use the './'.
