I have a nodejs based application server. I would also like to add qgis-server functionality to node. Something like this:

expressapp.get(someAuthenticationMiddleware(), qgisServerRequestHandler());

I can't find any reference on how to call/use fast-cgi script through nodejs. Has anyone done it?

1 Answer 1


Node.js cannot run and forward requests to a fast cgi application. Solution for the way i want to use qgis-server is, to use the default installation of qgis-server via apache2 and lib-mod-fcgid, then using a reverse proxy technique for forwarding requests to apache.
