As pointed out by github messages by Maxime Besson, the foswiki-fastcgi.service file should not run as root.

Also the documentation on how to customize the service file needs some work. It turns out that there are a number of issues.

  • User / Group must be specified, and cannot be done using environment variable substitution,.
  • The PIDFile location must exist, and be writable by the specified User/Group. The default /var/run/... location is not.
  • The PIDFile location must be an absolute path. Variable substitution not supported.
  • The WorkingDirectory also must be an absolute path without variable substitution.

There should be some docs on this in the InstallationGuide and FastCGIEngineContrib
