    I don’t have an in-depth explanation for you as to what that warning means but the Blubrry dev team has confirmed it has no impact on the functionality of PowerPress. You can disregard the warning.

    Hi Shawn,

    Thanks for the reply! 🙂 We’ll just leave it be.

    Hello Thomas,

    There is one currently known issue with PHP in CGI mode that relate to podcasting:

    • Password protected feeds (premium podcasting): There is a work around available but if your not aware you are using PHP in CGI mode you will never get this feature to work

    There were other issues many years ago related to the .htaccess file not being read by FastCGI but with more recent versions of PHP and WordPress this has not been an issue.


    Hi Angelo,

    Thanks for the elaborated response. 🙂 We don’t have any premium podcasting, so I guess this won’t be any problem for us.
