Can anyone recommend a good host that runs FCGI or lighttpd reliably? We're with a (shared) host now that just runs Rails in regular CGI mode, and we're killing the server with the Rails startup time for each request. Our load really isn't that bad, except for the startup cost. Unfortunately the host can't do FCGI in a shared environment. Do any hosts do FCGI in a shared environment, or do we have to get a dedicated server (or run under a VM)? Thanks.

I have written a few articles about this here: http://brainspl.at/articles/2005/11/11/rails-vps-servers-at- rimuhosting-com And here is a tutorial I wrote for setting up a nice debian lighttpd/ fcgi server in a VPS or dedicated environamen: http://brainspl.at/rails_stack.html Hope those help you out some.
