Description Matthias Lehr 2019-08-21 11:16:06 UTC
Please update the documentation for fcgistarter 

-c command 

(command requires absolute path)

reason a "chdir /" was executed somewhere before "execl(command)" 
so command must be given with absolute path, otherwise "command" 
is not found by execl (file not found) and fcgistarter terminates 
without any error message
