I've followed the install the install guide on http://hivelogic.com/articles/2005/12/01/ruby_rail... and it seemed to work. And I've been following the Instant Gratifiction guide in Chapter four in Agile Web D. with Rails book. I'm in terminal and I type - cd work (everything works fine) then rails demo (everything seems to work) then cd demo (all goes well) then ls -p (nothing wrong) then ruby script server - and i get this error - ruby: Is a directory - script (Errno::EISDIR) william-mors-powerbook-g4-15:~/work/demo cooper$ ruby script/server => Booting lighttpd (use 'script/server webrick' to force WEBrick) => Rails application started on http://0.0.0.0:3000 => Call with -d to detach (requires absolute paths in config/lighttpd.conf) => Ctrl-C to shutdown server (see config/lighttpd.conf for options) 2006-03-24 21:50:10: (mod_fastcgi.c.1022) execve failed for: public/dispatch.fcgi No such file or directory 2006-03-24 21:50:10: (mod_fastcgi.c.1048) the fastcgi-backend public/dispatch.fcgi failed to start: 2006-03-24 21:50:10: (mod_fastcgi.c.1052) child exited with status 2 public/dispatch.fcgi 2006-03-24 21:50:10: (mod_fastcgi.c.1055) if you try do run PHP as FastCGI backend make sure you use the FastCGI enabled version. You can find out if it is the right one by executing 'php -v' and it should display '(cgi-fcgi)' in the output, NOT (cgi) NOR (cli) For more information check http://www.lighttpd.net/documentation/fastcgi.html... 2006-03-24 21:50:10: (mod_fastcgi.c.1060) If this is PHP on Gentoo add fastcgi to the USE flags 2006-03-24 21:50:10: (mod_fastcgi.c.1356) [ERROR]: spawning fcgi failed. 2006-03-24 21:50:10: (server.c.834) Configuration of plugins failed. Going down. Does anyone have any insight? Thanks! :)

We had to change the bin-path base dir to / for security reasons. --------------- Adding the "CWD +" part fixed for me what looks like the same error. -- Jack Baty Fusionary Media - http://www.fusionary.com

Not sure about the second issue, but your first problem is caused because the command should be "ruby script/server" not "ruby script server".

lighttpd after version 1.4.9 requires the full path in the "bin-path" part of the lighttpd.conf file. So instead of: "bin-path" => "public/dispatch.fcgi", You will need to do: "bin-path" => "/Users/USERNAME/demo/public/dispatch.fcgi", -Steve http://www.stevelongdo.com
