I am at my wits end trying to get Rails running through Apache. After
digging through countless "how-tos" on the web, I'm stuck.



I'm running Suse 10, Apache 2, and want to be able to enter in my PCs IP
and a subdirectory and bring up the Rails upp, e.g.
192.168.10.10/railsapp



But I cannot figure how to do so.


This is my virtualhost declaration:



<VirtualHost *:80>
       ServerName railsapp
       DocumentRoot /home/nathan/rails/railsapp/public
       <Directory /home/nathan/rails/railsapp/public >
               Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
               AllowOverride all
               Allow from all
               Order allow,deny
       </Directory>
</VirtualHost>



Can anyone point me in the right direction for how to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance,

Nathan

What errors do you actually get?  What gets logged in the server
logs when the browser fails to get your app?

If that is the name of your application should it be a server name
as well?

and you have the stuff like:

  AddType application/x-httpd-eruby .rhtml
  Action application/x-http-eruby /cgi-bin/eruby

setup as well?

And what happens when you point a browser to:
http://railsapp/

What you are looking for is advice on how to run multiple Rails apps on
the same server, without using virtual hosts. I haven't tried it yet,
but Scott L.'s advice here looks promising:

http://scottstuff.net/blog/articles/2005/07/20/apa...

He says you should have a FastCgiServer line for each application.

See comments 2 and 8 on the article, and Scott's responses.

Example (from comment 2)

FastCgiServer /rails_app_1/dispatch.fcgi \
   -idle-timeout 120 \
   -initial-env RAILS_ENV=production \
   -processes 10

FastCgiServer /rails_app_2/dispatch.fcgi \
   -idle-timeout 120 \
   -initial-env RAILS_ENV=production \
   -processes 10

(note that the numbers of statically allocated processes here are high -
Scott says 2 should be fine unless you are dealing with heavy traffic)

Please tell us if that works for you.

regards

    Justin
