I'm hosting an internet.py application in Apache using FastCGI (mod_fcgid particularly). It seems that my web.py application doesn't really get began before the first request is created through Apache. I've some initialization work I actually do at the beginning of my application, and so i would much would rather have the work carried out at Apache startup (or reload) rather than making the very first requester spend the money for cost from the extra wait time.

It is possible to method to make Apache/mod_fcgid do that work ahead of time?

Thanks.
