Hi All,

I'm new to RoR apps this week, just installed redMine, and have a
couple of questions.

Should I be running this with WEBrick, or something else? I read
somewhere that WEBrick should only be a temporary solution.

I've already started the WEBrick daemon because I thought that was the
only way. Now how do I stop it? I'm on a shared server, I don't have
root access. Ctrl-C didn't work for me.

Thanks,
Chris

You have a couple of options for live application FCGI or Mongrel (&
Mongrel Cluster).  Mongrel is the preferred way of doing things at the
moment (I've found it a bit more stable that FCGI, but they both work
pretty well)

If you get your application setup with Capistrano you can't really go
wrong when deploying/updating your application.
