Internal Server Error with a FastCGI install

Sorry to bother you kind folks with a boring issue… but I am in dire
need and will really appreciate any input… even point me in the right
direction and I can research more would be appreciated… I have been
slogging this out for over a week now with gradual success… it is time
to ask for help…

I have successfully installed Apache/2.0.49 (Unix) DAV/2
mod_fastcgi/2.4.2 Server, along with MySQL and Postfix on an OpenBSD box.
All perl dependancies are now sorted (thanks to CPAN my new friend!!!)

Reason for Fastcgi was because we want 2 or 3 installs for different
companies on the one server.

Present predicament<<
When I go to the url, I simply get a generic "Internal Server Error"
message (I did, for a short time et the login screen but could not log
in, it went to a 404 screen and the logo was missing, but that is all
gone now)

I am expecting this all has something to do with my Apache config…so
the following snips are what I have in the httpd.conf file
########>> Section for RT bits <<#####################
LoadModule fastcgi_module modules/mod_fastcgi.so

AddModule mod_fastcgi.c

(btw the username and group settings are listed before my RT bits
section - I found this to be important with permissions)

Have I provided enough information? If I have missed something, please
let me know and I will get it asap…

I did successfully install an RT2 about 1 year ago on a FreeBSD box but
it broke when we updated our MySQL

Any help would be appreciated, I am not expecting anybody to do this for
me but my head is getting sore from the brick wall in front of me

Thank you for your time

John

You only showed us one virtual host section, and it
controls /opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi

I believe each virtual host will have to control
a differently named mason_handler.fcgi

I have a wiki article showing how I manage multiple
fcgi servers on a single apache, using different
databases. I don’t happen to use virtual hosts,
but the idea is the same:
