I need a VERY SIMPLE solution to get to my rails app. We have a
WHM/Cpanel linux server with numerous virtual servers on it. I have an
existing website called www.mydomain.com that lives in
I have written a rails app called “test” that is in /home/mydomain/test,
and it’s rails “root” is therefore /home/mydomain/test/public.
I am an apache dummy, and have experimented with lighttpd and apache to
no avail and keep pissing off my fellow hosts when I hose the apache
To date I am running mongrel_rails behind apache, and my users have been
using a url like “http://www.mydomain.com:8008” assuming I configure
mongrel_rails on port 8008.
Now I have users behind firewalls that cannot access the 8008 port and I
would like something simple that enables my users to type
“http://www.mydomain/com/test” and have it bring up the rails app.
Much thanks in advance as the WIKIs have me spinning in circles
