I'd like to be able to type mongrel_rails start and have mongrel read a conf file like lighttpd does. I'm pretty sure this can be done but the documentation refers to a camping interface and I just don't see it. Can someone point me in the right direction?

1) To use a config file, "mongrel_rails start -h" gives us the solution : -C, --config PATH Use a config file 2) The camping interface is given with the mongrel_config plugin. To get the plugin : "gem install mongrel_config" Once the plugin is installed, mongrel_rails command has another option = configtool : "mongrel_rails configtool" launches a web application on http://localhost:3001/camping. HTH, Stéphane.

Hi, Someone mentioned it, but the option you want is -C to give it a config file. The config file is currently not well documented (which I'm fixing up as we speak), but basically it takes each of the long command line switches as hash items to a YAML file. If you are serious about doing a configuration based deployment, you are probably also serious about managing a cluster of mongrel servers. If this is the case, then check out the mongrel_cluster gem from Bradley Taylor and railsmachine.net. It basically handles the config files, starts, restarts, etc. for a cluster of mongrel processes. You can get this by doing gem install mongrel_cluster. There was a post recently about it, but I'm going to also have docs on it "real soon now". There is an additional option for the mongrel hackers out there -S which lets you use a "mongrel script". This is for advanced folks only though. It basically let's you use the Configurator to add your own spiffy handlers and such. Hope that helps. Zed A. Shaw http://www.zedshaw.com/ http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/
