Having issues with fastcgi php handler

well i had this problem for a while some of my add ones don't seem to work well with this and also i am using user friendly URLs with the htaccess mod re write rules that the xenforo installation came with i modified it a bit to my own needs as in i added more re write rules but when i went from suphp to fastcgi my site started to run faster and smoother but also started up some issues.

i am not 100% where the fastcgi.conf is i know where php.conf is and where all my Apache conf files are.

i am using php 5.4.x

some of my add ones that use CGI have issues such as waindigo's user upgrades add one i have contacted him several times and he said it configuration on my server. i know other site suffers the same issue but they havent fixed it on there and i haven't figured out what is wrong:

so is there any proper documentation on how to properly configure xenforo to with with fastcgi? any settings/files need to be edited?

and the errors i get from some add ones are issues with magic magic fatel error:
"Fatal Error: Call to undefined method"

also issues with user upgrades add one giving me errors such as this:

i believe that when a user tries to buy something they press on the buy link but the link doesn't generate properly and it doesn't include the sellers email. therefore giving an error i think it a fastcgi mis configuration some where but i not sure how to fix this.

this what i have in my forums folder well a peace of it i wont show the rest due to security reasons:

now some one told me i need to have the htaccess file as htaccess.txt not .htaccess as the hidden format which i have always had

also a friend told me to do this but i don't understand any of this:

[23/02/2014 9:58:06 pm] .:: TeOzSec ::.: location /xf/ {
try_files $uri $uri/ /xf/index.php?$uri&$args;
index index.php index.html;

location /xf/internal_data/ {
location /xf/library/ {

location ~ \.php$ {
try_files $uri =404;
fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
include         fastcgi_params;
[23/02/2014 9:58:31 pm] .:: TeOzSec ::.: Same thing again, replace /xf/ with /forums/
[23/02/2014 9:59:20 pm] .:: TeOzSec ::.: Then rename .htaccess to htaccess.txt and see if that makes a difference
