[ANN] MongrelDay Documentation -- Memoirs Of A Web Server

Happy RailsDay!

While everyone else was out having fun with RailsDay I spent my time
wisely and wrote up tons of documentation for Mongrel and cleaned out
some of the docs I’ll never write anyway. I also took the time to apply
some nice patches from Jonas P. for easily setting up redirects
in Mongrel.

Some of the highlighted documents people will be interested in are:

There’s lots more that were cleaned up, but if you find any errors feel
free to shoot me the corrections.

SUGGESTING AND WRITING

If you think there’s some documentation that needs to be written then
shoot me an e-mail and read:

http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/docs/contrib.html

That tells you all the stuff you need to do to write a documentation
page. I know one person who got a job from his documentation for
Mongrel, so it’s a money maker too! I’m starting pyramid schemes this
week!

MONGREL IS #2!

I’m not a competitive person, but in your face One-Click! Mongrel
finally beat it out. Now to just take down RubyGems. I think it
shouldn’t count since everyone needs it. What do you think?

BTW, if anyone wonders why I support win32, just ask yourself why the
Ruby O.-Click installer is consistently in the top three projects on
RubyForge. Yeah, windows doesn’t matter at all.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Apache docs and 0.3.13.1 up next!

Is it possible to add HTTPS handling to litespeed documentation,
similar to the one for pound (sending an additional header):

pass along https hint

AddHeader “X-Forwarded-Proto: https”
HeadRemove “X-Forwarded-Proto”

It’s covered also in the apache+mod_load_balance docs, but i couldn’t
find any info for litespeed.

Wow. You stand as a model for all to follow.

(Really really really selective) excerpt:
“Code lube is the answer to necessary code fisting.”

Colorful, too.

Heh, there’s some funny shit in there!

* â??Wow that idea is so brilliant I think Iâ??ll sign an NDA right away
so you can take all my rights and all my work.�

And thanks for the docs!

Zedas-

Once again you amaze. Thanks for all the hard work. Almost all of

the code I write these days depends on mongrel so thanks for that.

Problem solved:

The new litespeed-2.1.17 version automatically adding
‘X-Forwarded-Proto: https’ when proxing. Pretty nifty :slight_smile: Go-Go Mongrel
