Au3 FastCGI - AuCGI, but faster. ( Generate WebPages behind any WebServer )

Recommended Posts


Arck System.

Version 0.1 Beta

alpha version ( proof of concept ).

Version 0.1 Beta *

What is it ?

Au3 FastCGI is a CGI handler that will run constantly to get request from webservers

The process will send back html code to the webserver.

It’s the same as php or other language that acts as cgi.

FastCGI is powerful since CGI spawn a process on each request. FastCGI works with TCP connection, so it’s always started to handle request.

Some reads : http://www.fastcgi.com/drupal/

Features :

This udf enables FastCGI to be used with autoit.

FastCGI is used by a lot of webservers ( mainly to use php ) to call functions written in other languages. Its main purpose is too use sockets on existants processes instead of stdios to send/receive result and spawn process.

With is, you can spawn your fastcgi “listener” then let it run. A service is in preparation to do so.

You can use any webserver that support FastCGI. Lighttp, apache, and more, make a total third part architecture. The webserver with your firewall can run in linux and Au3_fastcgi_Server can run on a dedicated server.

Multiple instances can run, so many processes can run, to avoid contention and make a bigger webserver.

This UDF uses

  • TCP_Event by kip to boost performances. ( avoid loop )
  • Bininbinary by ward to fastcheck only needed informations. ( avoid uses of multiple structure, can gain 1-2 ms ) ( will be in proper version ) ( not used in FastCGI_Lite )
For now, this udf lets you make webservers in autoit with easy integration. By detaching webserver and fastcgi, you can easily update your webserver.

I’ve attached a script that you rerun your script in scite to test. Simply right-click on autoit icon when running, then click restart, and it will close and tells cite to reload it. Be careful, scite will run active tab.

To use it, you have to think this way :

The main process will handle all of your process code. You have to let the engine function, then add your functions to test it.

When you call http://localhost/test.au3, the script will call “test” function.

If the function doesn’t exists, a custom 404 error is thrown. For now, you can’t set subpages ( like /somepages/test/index.au3 ) only “root” can be called.

The Fast CGI Lite script is my paperboard. You can execute it and test some pages, but it will changed often in the future. Please test your script in an external file.


  • First of all, start the ServerControl.exe, then click start, and reduces it if everything ok. If another process is listening to port 80, close it, or change port in ligttpd config files.
  • Open Au3_FastCGI_Lite.au3 in Scite and run it
  • Open your favorite webbrower and type http://localhost/index.au3

    • You should see a 404 custom page
  • Now go to http://localhost/_all.au3


  • Add SubPages Support
  • Add GZip support ( should be on lighttp size, don’t know)
  • Add ability to send/receive files and process them
  • Add Multiple process example
  • Add Session ID or something like that
  • Benchmark TCP Event <> TCP Loop


  • Your code must contain engine code.
  • All of your pages must be functions ( for now, I plan to make something different with an array soon )
  • All au3 code must be added in. You can btw use external files to make more. AutoIt can’t compile code on the fly (as php does ), so your “listener” must be fully stopped and restarted to test changes.
  • Doesn’t support session id ( for now )

Don't use au3_fastcgi_server, prefer use au3_fastcgi_lite.au3

you can remove those, they are other test pages ;)

will post update asap.

How to use $_FILES Global Var?

i'm use code...

 $error = "";
 $msg = "";
 $fileElementName = 'fileToUpload';

   case '1':
    $error = 'The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini';
   case '2':
    $error = 'The uploaded file exceeds the MAX_FILE_SIZE directive that was specified in the HTML form';
   case '3':
    $error = 'The uploaded file was only partially uploaded';

    $error = 'No file was uploaded.';

   case '6':
    $error = 'Missing a temporary folder';

    $error = 'Failed to write file to disk';
   case '8':
    $error = 'File upload stopped by extension';
   case '999':

 }elseif(empty($_FILES['fileToUpload']['tmp_name']) || $_FILES['fileToUpload']['tmp_name'] == 'none')
  $error = 'No file was uploaded..';
   $msg .= " File Name: " . $_FILES['fileToUpload']['name'] . ", ";
   $msg .= " File Size: " . @filesize($_FILES['fileToUpload']['tmp_name']);
   //for security reason, we force to remove all uploaded file
 echo "{";
 echo    "error: '" . $error . "',n";
 echo    "msg: '" . $msg . "'n";

      I'm having an issue with my html paginated table. The script work as expected. It reads the html table and clicks on the Download button. However when it clicks on the next page its not iterating the items. instead it goes to the next URL from the spreadsheet and then iterates through the html table clicking the Download button and so on. Not sure why its doing that. I want it to click the next page and then continue iterating then after it has reached the end of the pagination go to the next url in the spreadsheet and repeat the process. Below is my script. Any help is appreciated 🙂

      Hi, I have a site that has the following elements below: 
      <div>More element here</div> <div>More element here</div> <div>More element here</div> When I do this in Auto It:
      Local $oSelectDiv = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "div") _WD_HighlightElement($sSession, $oSelectDiv, 1) I also tried to add [3], but it doesnt seems to work:
      Local $oSelectDiv = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "div[3]") _WD_HighlightElement($sSession, $oSelectDiv, 1) It always highlight the first one, but I am trying to highlight the 3rd in the list. Is there anyway to select the 3rd div without having to add any class/id in the divs, and without using XPATH? The structure of the elements in that site were built that way.

      I am looking to create a script which refreshes/reads a webpage every few seconds. My goal is to see if the page has changed, then I will send myself a notification that the webpage has been updated.
      However, rather than downloading the entire webpage every single time, is there a way to check when the webpage last updated?
      If not, is there away to partially download/read html source until a specific tag is hit?
      Goal: I would like to increase my poll rate and not excessively waste data.

      Alright, I may be an idiot.
      Three years ago, I wrote a program that pushed component information to a secure site via their API. I went back to add some attributes and (here's the idiot part) ended up losing the  source code and my modified code does not quite work. I have the compiled version that works minus the new attributes, so I know that their system has not changed. I stripped the larger program down from 3,000 lines to the part that is broken, but I am stumped. This was one of my first scripts, so it heavily leverages examples and isn't as pretty as I'd like it to be.
      Be gentle. 
      The program / script creates a new records as expected, but for some reason, I cannot access information in the response, which I need for a later step.
      I use Charles, a web debugging proxy tool so I can see the request and the response and both are as expected. Also, when I write to log file, the JSON reply is exactly what I expect and need, but when I try to do anything with the http body, it seems to be blank. 
      Here is the script minus  the URL and token:
      #include <Array.au3> #include <Curl.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <json.au3>  ; this was added as an alternate way to read the data Global $WM_serial_number = "WM20745001" Global $wm_component_status_id = "10" Global $wm_manufacturer ="Multi-Tech" Global $wm_model = "MTR-LAT1-B07" Global $cellular_carrier_id = "3" Global $iccid_esn = "89010303300012345678" Global $ip_address = "" Global $NewIDNumber     Local $Curl = Curl_Easy_Init()     Local $Html = $Curl ; any number as identify     Local $Header = $Curl + 1 ; any number as identify     Local $HtmlFile = "cURL_Request.html"     Local $File = FileOpen($HtmlFile, 2 + 16)     Local $Slist = Curl_Slist_Append(0, "content-type: multipart/form-data; boundary=---011000010111000001101001")     $Slist = Curl_Slist_Append($Slist, "authorization: Token token=" & $Token)     Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_PROXY, "") ; needed to use Charles web debugging proxy     Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_PROXYPORT, 8888) ; needed to use Charles     Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $Slist) ;     Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_URL, $Server & "wireless_module" & "s")     Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0)     Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 30)     Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_WRITEDATA, $Html)     Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, Curl_FileWriteCallback())     Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_WRITEDATA, $File)     Local $HttpPost = ""     Local $LastItem = ""         Curl_FormAdd($HttpPost, $LastItem, $CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "wireless_module" & "[serial_number]", $CURLFORM_COPYCONTENTS, $WM_serial_number, $CURLFORM_END)         Curl_FormAdd($HttpPost, $LastItem, $CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "wireless_module" & "[component_status_id]", $CURLFORM_COPYCONTENTS, $wm_component_status_id, $CURLFORM_END)         Curl_FormAdd($HttpPost, $LastItem, $CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "wireless_module" & "[manufacturer]", $CURLFORM_COPYCONTENTS, $wm_manufacturer, $CURLFORM_END)         Curl_FormAdd($HttpPost, $LastItem, $CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "wireless_module" & "[model]", $CURLFORM_COPYCONTENTS, $wm_model, $CURLFORM_END)         Curl_FormAdd($HttpPost, $LastItem, $CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "wireless_module" & "[cellular_carrier_id]", $CURLFORM_COPYCONTENTS, $cellular_carrier_id, $CURLFORM_END)         Curl_FormAdd($HttpPost, $LastItem, $CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "wireless_module" & "[iccid_esn]", $CURLFORM_COPYCONTENTS, $iccid_esn, $CURLFORM_END)         Curl_FormAdd($HttpPost, $LastItem, $CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "wireless_module" & "[ip_address]", $CURLFORM_COPYCONTENTS, $ip_address, $CURLFORM_END)         ; submit         Curl_Easy_Setopt($Curl, $CURLOPT_HTTPPOST, $HttpPost)         Local $Code = Curl_Easy_Perform($Curl)         If $Code = $CURLE_OK Then         ConsoleWrite("Content Type: " & Curl_Easy_GetInfo($Curl, $CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE) & @LF)         ConsoleWrite("Download Size: " & Curl_Easy_GetInfo($Curl, $CURLINFO_SIZE_DOWNLOAD) & @LF)         MsgBox(0, 'Html', BinaryToString(Curl_Data_Get($Html))) ; this is something I threw in for debugging, expecting to see SOMETHING.

      I have an html table that displays data along with an excel spreadsheet that has the same data as the html table. I am wanting to only match the Title column in my html table with the Title column in my Excel spreadsheet. If the titles match, click on the Edit hyperlink and continue to loop to next row. The issue I'm experience is its not matching correctly. So far  i've written the codes below:
