Many thanks to Florian F. for the code snippet for handling URL writing.... It gave me an idea on how to solve my problem with IIS + Subfolders / Apache + SCGI + subfolders This is my first attempt at trying to override anything in Rails so please be kind :) Pick it apart though... Is this the right way to go about this code-wise or is there something else I should be looking at, like maybe AbstractRequest#relative_url_root() as was suggested on the dev site? Should this be a plugin rather than doing what I'm doing? If you need background information on this, see this posting http://dev.rubyonrails.com/ticket/2602 Enough boring-ness. Here's the code (again, borrowed much from Florian's example). I'm simply requiring this file from the production environment.rb file. Everything "appears" to work as expected but I want to see if anyone can see any potential problems. vender/vdir_fix.rb ===================== # configure this for each application... Maybe this should go in # environment.rb as well? BASE_URL = '/myvdirname' module ActionController # Need this so stylesheets / JS files / images can be found ActionController::Base.asset_host = BASE_URL class UrlRewriter alias old_rewrite_url rewrite_url # url writing using the base dir specified above def rewrite_url(path, options) url = old_rewrite_url(path, options) # let's dump the protocol and the host if it's a local url.... # This seemed necessary for redirect_to links. url = url.gsub(@request.protocol + @request.host_with_port, '') #now let's add the base_url to the url. url = BASE_URL + url url # return end end end Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help. We're closer than ever to being able to use Rails in our production environment! -Brian H.
