I am trying to set up rails and am have problems. I have googled everything I could think of, but have not found my problem. Here are my specs. Gentoo Linux 2006.0 Apache 2.2 Ruby 1.8.4 Gems 1.8 Rails 1.1.2 mod_fcgid 1.08 When I try to access my test rails app through the webserver, I get the following error in the error.log (after seeing a html 500 error on the page). [Fri Apr 14 19:54:48 2006] [notice] mod_fcgid: server /var/www/rails/cookbook/public/dispatch.fcgi(20039) started /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-1.3.1/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:123:in `const_missing': uninitialized constant RailsFCGIHandler (NameError) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-1.3.1/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:131:in `const_missing' from /var/www/rails/cookbook/public/dispatch.fcgi:25 I have seen suggestions to run 'ruby dispatch.fcgi' from the command line, but I get the same error. Any suggestions?

I had the exact same side effect when the fcgi gem wasn't installed... so I'd be suspcicious about that gem... maybe it's not installed correctly?

I have the exact same problem: root public# ./dispatch.fcgi ./dispatch.fcgi:19: uninitialized constant RailsFCGIHandler (NameError) root public# And I do have fcgi installed: root public# gem list *** LOCAL GEMS *** actionmailer (1.3.3) Service layer for easy email delivery and testing. actionpack (1.13.3) Web-flow and rendering framework putting the VC in MVC. actionwebservice (1.2.3) Web service support for Action Pack. activerecord (1.15.3) Implements the ActiveRecord pattern for ORM. activesupport (1.4.2) Support and utility classes used by the Rails framework. cgi_multipart_eof_fix (2.3) Fix an exploitable bug in CGI multipart parsing. fastthread (1.0) Optimized replacement for thread.rb primitives fcgi (0.8.7) FastCGI library for Ruby. fcgiwrap (0.1.5) A trick to wrap CGI in FastCGI easily flvtool2 (1.0.6) Flash video (FLV) manipulation tool gem_plugin (0.2.2) A plugin system based only on rubygems that uses dependencies only highline (1.4.0) HighLine is a high-level command-line IO library. needle (1.3.0) Needle is a Dependency Injection/Inversion of Control container for Ruby. It supports both type-2 (setter) and type-3 (constructor) injection. It takes advantage of the dynamic nature of Ruby to provide a rich and flexible approach to injecting dependencies. rails (1.2.3) Web-application framework with template engine, control-flow layer, and ORM. rake (0.7.3) Ruby based make-like utility. rubyforge (0.4.4) A script which automates a limited set of rubyforge operations. sources (0.0.1) This package provides download sources for remote gem installation root public# So this isn't a web service problem, it's a ruby not loading with it's own fcgi gem. I installed it by running root public# gem install fcgi Then I again tried installing manually, by downloading the tgz and manually building it. It built without errors, and still the same result. Has anyone got this to work?

Ok, I fixed it! My dispatch.fcgi file originally read: RailsFCGIHandler.process! '/var/log/myapp_fcgi_crash.log' require File.dirname(__FILE__) + "/../config/environment" require 'fcgi_handler' RailsFCGIHandler.process! And something didn't seem right about that, so I tested a theory: require File.dirname(__FILE__) + "/../config/environment" require 'fcgi_handler' RailsFCGIHandler.process! '/var/log/myapp_fcgi_crash.log' RailsFCGIHandler.process! Guess what! That fixed it, and I wasted an entire day on this. I'm submitting a bug right after posting this. Cheers, Michael
