I've finally gotten lighttpd working for my production instance (SUSE
10.0 with SSL).

(Had to install the fcgi dev toolkit, the SUSE 10 ruby-fcgi rpm, and
the fcgi gem.  I'm not positive all 3 were required, but that is what
I did.)

Now the devel instance of my app is broken.

I'm not sure how to fix it.

Previously I was using WEBrick for both devel and production.  (their
on the same box).

I only have the lighttpd config file setup to support my production
instance.

Now when I try to run rails/app.devel/script/server it appears to try
and run lighttpd.

Unfortunately this fails.  Do I need to update my lighttpd config to
support devel, or somehow force script/server to launch WEBrick?

Thanks
Greg

We tried to use one file for both production and development but it
never worked very well. Right now, for DevLists.com there is config/
lighttpd.conf for development and config/lighttpd-devlists.conf for
production.

I like having app name in the production config file name -- we run
multiple instances of lighttpd and this makes it easier to kill the
right one when needed.

Best Regards, Roustem.

Greg-

	What version of l;ighttpd are you using? The recent versions
( >=1.4.9 ) cannot use relative paths in the config file. So the
lighttpd.conf file in your config directory needs to be edited and
add full absolute paths to your public dir and your dispatch.fcgi.

Thanks,  I can do that easily enough for my standard instances
(production, QA, devel).

OTOH, with WEBrick I was creating little sandboxes all the time.  I
would simply make a copy of my devel setup and run script/server
--port nnn, where nnn was a unique number.

Is there a simple way to make script/server invoke WEBrick, or some
other way to easily launch WEBrick manually?

Thanks
Greg

It is easy:

./script/server webrick

Thanks Ezra,

That fixed my immediate issue and I see that "script/server webrick"
can be used in my sandboxes.  I think I'm set.

I think I read that edge rails has a fix to be compatible with the
relative path issue.  That will be very handy as well.
