My ISP is Rogers.com (in Ontario Canada).
I have found out that their web server is Apache 2.0.52 by using cURL
HEAD.

My question is how do I find out if they support Ruby/Rails? I.E. if
they are running the needed extensions/plugins to Apache?

Speaking to their 1st level tech support is no help.

TIA for your advice...

respect...

If they run Passenger then that should have been included in the HTTP
header. AFAIK it's currently not possible to disable the Passenger
header without modifying the source code.

Passenger and Mongrel register themselves through the HTTP header. If
you can't find it in the headers then you should find it on the ISP
website, through tech support (see below) or on your account control
panel.

Then it'd be my bet that they don't support it.
