I'm migrating an old Rails App to a new server, I think I've got most
of my issues worked out so far.  But....

When I run script/server --trace in the app I get the following
output...  and I have no clue what to do or even where to look...  Any
guidance or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

script/server --trace
=> Booting WEBrick...
server: invalid option: --trace

Thanks in advance for any guidance/assistance.

yup, definitely not there.. doh.

ok, so I ran script/server without the trace and I get this

=> Booting WEBrick...

and then it comes back to the command prompt.  It doesn't start the
app....?  I was trying to use trace to see why.

Is there any way to troubleshoot this?
