Hi, (i do not pretend to use RoR) For a web app using a MySQL or Postgres db (and some YAML for static cached data), hosted on a Debian machine, can i have: - lighttpd - fastcgi - eruby eruby is my question. Can i use it with lighttpd ? The first web app is a specific content manager for the client company needs. The need for eruby is just embed code in html. Even so, can i use cgi's for session managment, etc ? thank you, Piett H.

This shouldn't be a problem if your application is only lightly used. Otherwise, you might want to consider something like fastcgi (see ruby-fcgi in rubyforge). I'm pretty sure that lighttpd can talk to fastcgi processes. Alternatively, write your application as a standalone HTTP app using webrick or mongrel, and then use lighttpd to proxy *.rhtml to the app.
