After changing some ownerships in my rails app directory to try to get
Radrails to work I'm getting the following error when I try to run any

[Thu Apr 06 22:16:01 2006] [alert] [client] (13)Permission
FastCGI: failed to connect to (dynamic) server
"/var/rails/tutorial/public/dispatch.fcgi": something is seriously
any chance the socket/named_pipe directory was removed?, see the
FastCgiIpcDir directive
[Thu Apr 06 22:16:01 2006] [error] [client] FastCGI:
headers (0 bytes) received from server

I know this has to do with perms but I'm not sure where to start. Can
someone help with the "socket/named_pipe" message? I particularly don't
the "something is seriously wrong" part.

I'm afraid while doing some experimental ownership changes I've
changed ownership of something I shouldn't have. I think I may have
stepped in it this time.
