I just went thru the hivelogic article to get everything installed on my new mac. I then decided to run thru the ADC Rails article. In the article it says to run 'script/server' which will start lighttpd if installed or webrick if not. When I do it, I get webrick not lighttpd. I followed the hivelogic article word for word and everything else seems to be working fine. Is there something I need to do to the lighttpd.config file to make this work? The ADC article makes it sound like it should just work. help?

Make sure lighttpd is in your PATH. From the bash prompt: which lighttpd -- -- Tom M.

Instead of "mate ~/.bash_login", type "sudo pico ~/.bash_login" (your file will show empty here, meaning the PATH wasn't saved correctly last time around) 3. Copy/Paste the following lines: export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:$PATH" export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH" If you plan on installing RMagick, you'll probably want to add this line too: export PATH="/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH" 4. Type "Control-X" and save the file 5. You might need to chmod 777 the .bash_login file, I'm not sure anymore. 6. Open a new Terminal window and query "ruby --version" (it should show "ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [powerpc-darwin8.5.0]") 7. Make a new rails application somewhere with "rails myappname" 8. cd myappname 9. script/server It should now read: => Booting lighttpd (use 'script/server webrick' to force WEBrick) => Rails application started on http://0.0.0.0:3000 => Call with -d to detach => Ctrl-C to shutdown server (see config/lighttpd.conf for options) Best regards Peter De Berdt

Thanks Peter, but that wasn't it. I opened .bash_login with pico and both lines are there and typed correctly. I did a control-x and tried script/server but it still started webrick.

Fixed. Looks like I forgot to install FCGI.
