Hello all, I'm using Lighty-Win32 and Mongrel. I have one rails app working against http://hostname/. I want to know how to route lighty and my app to http://hostname/appname1. I have multiple apps that I would eventually want to route with http://hostname/appname2, http://hostname/appname3, etc. I am not trying to "productize", these are separate distinct apps that I'm trying to serve from the same host. If subdomaining is a better solution, please explain. Thank you all for your help! --

I have not tried this with lighty but I imagine the problem might be session related. It seems to set the session scope via the hostname and so if you are doing authetication, separate domains might be safer. Otherwise, you might have user id 1 in one app take user id 1 in another app. If they are separate domains, then the cookie is different and the sessions cannot be shared. If I am wrong here, I would love to be corrected but I am reasonably sure this is how it works.
