Admin says no to Ruby on Rails

I need some info for an admin who is unwilling to support Ruby on Rails
because he says it “uses a container that has to be bounced which can
cause problems with the server.”

The admin also says he has been reading and claims Rails is causing
problems for many companies.

I need to convince this admin that Rails is worth supporting.

I also need some info to convince this admin Rails is not more of a
security risk than say hosting PHP applications.

Has to be bounced ? we never restart our mongrels except for upgrades

Rails and shared hosting don’t get along that well, but other than
that I wouldn’t worry too much

You can write an insecure application in any language/framework.
Comparing rails to php is a bit odd, one being a language and the
other a framework. It is true though that rails tries hard to
encourage secure behaviour by default (eg if ou use the default AR
stuff you should be safe from sql injection)
