I have the same question.  I need to run as a
app and as a php app or such.  What's the best way to do
on IIS and windows 2003?

Well Shawn, running RoR on IIS is not an easy thing to do at all. If
someone else here has better knowledge, I do not know of anyone who has
tried and succeeded in getting RoR to run properly with IIS. Stick with
Apache, if you can, it's a hell of a lot easier and nicer.

Again, if someone else has had success with this, please respond.

Thanks for your insight Jason,

Under normal conditions, I'd agree with you.  In fact, all sites I have
worked on have been on Apache.  The problem arose because the situation
not allow apache.  A rails site has to be wedged into an IIS
on a pre-existing server without interrupting its other sites.  Also, to
some additional information port 80 is all that can be allowed, so
running webrick on a different port will not work either.

Any help would be appreciated.
