In general you want to be placing your files into
/etc/apache2/sites-available and then:

  sudo a2ensite

For one of my fastcgi sites I have a file that looks like:

  <VirtualHost *:80>
  # usual server stuff for a virtualhost

  FastCgiServer /path/to/myapp/script/myapp_fastcgi.pl -processes 3 -initial-env CATALYST_DEBUG=1
  Alias /static   /path/to/myapp/root/static
  # run at the root
  Alias /    /path/to/myapp/script/cleavages_fastcgi.pl/

  # etc

You'll need either:

  sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
  sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

I also have some fastcgi docs for parley; I believe they still work:

  [ http://bit.ly/Parley_fastcgi ]

Hopefully that's enough to get you on your way.

  Always move fast - you never know who's catching up!
