Apache2 / fcgi / RoR - no connection


#1

Hi,

I’ve generated a new Rails app and dummy controller “foo” with method
“hello”. I am trying to run it under Apache/2.0.53 with fastcgi, and
getting the index.html page when I hit http://localhost/foo/hello, or
for any other request (http://localhost/kdjfslkfjs). Also, there is
nothing in the rails logs, and no errors in the apache logs.

Relevant bit of httpd.conf:

AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi

FastCgiIpcDir /tmp
FastCgiServer “/tmp/rubystuff/testapp/public/dispatch.fcgi”
-idle-timeout 20-initial-env RAILS_ENV=development -processes 2
FastCgiConfig -maxClassProcesses 1 -maxProcesses 1 -minProcesses 1
-processSlack 1
[ … ]
<Directory /tmp/rubystuff/testapp/public>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^$ index.html [QSA]
RewriteRule ^([^.]+)$ $1.html [QSA]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.fcgi [QSA,L]
Options Indexes +ExecCGI +FollowSymLinks
Order allow,deny
allow from all

and dispatch.fcgi looks like:
#!/usr/bin/ruby
require File.dirname(FILE) + “/…/config/environment”
require ‘fcgi_handler’
RailsFCGIHandler.process!

Any help appreciated,
Jim

Another thing about this is that the same thing happens even with a
broken dispatch.fcgi, that is, if Iput some bad ruby syntax in
dispatch.fcgi, there is no error message anywhere.

Jim,

Nothing obviously wrong that I notice. Not that that means much!

Are your FastCGI servers starting up? What does this show you after
you restart Apache?
ps aux | grep “fcgi”

Does regular old CGI work for your app?

What does your public/.htaccess file look like?

[~ 11:42:44]$ ps ax | grep fcgi

Yes but it’s incredibly slow, like <1 requests/sec mean.

That was it! Dumb mistake. Thank you.
