I’ve followed the install the install guide on
and it seemed to work. And I’ve been following the Instant Gratifiction
guide in Chapter four in Agile Web D. with Rails book. I’m in
terminal and I type -
cd work (everything works fine) then
rails demo (everything seems to work) then
cd demo (all goes well) then
ls -p (nothing wrong) then
ruby script server - and i get this error -
ruby: Is a directory - script (Errno::EISDIR)

2006-03-24 21:50:10: (mod_fastcgi.c.1055) if you try do run PHP as
FastCGI backend make sure you use the FastCGI enabled version.
You can find out if it is the right one by executing ‘php -v’ and it
should display ‘(cgi-fcgi)’ in the output, NOT (cgi) NOR (cli)
For more information check
2006-03-24 21:50:10: (mod_fastcgi.c.1060) If this is PHP on Gentoo add
fastcgi to the USE flags

Does anyone have any insight? Thanks!
