FCGI / lighttpd Hosts


#1

Can anyone recommend a good host that runs FCGI or lighttpd reliably?

We’re with a (shared) host now that just runs Rails in regular CGI mode,
and we’re killing the
server with the Rails startup time for each request. Our load really
isn’t that bad, except for
the startup cost. Unfortunately the host can’t do FCGI in a shared
environment.

Do any hosts do FCGI in a shared environment, or do we have to get a
dedicated server (or run
under a VM)?

Thanks.

Kian-

I have had very good luck with running rails on a VPS with

rimuhosting.com . I have written a few articles about this here:

And here is a tutorial I wrote for setting up a nice debian lighttpd/

fcgi server in a VPS or dedicated environamen:

Hope those help you out some.

Just want to chime in that I’ve followed those steps, and everything
worked out fine immediately.

Thanks Ezra for the great HOWTO.

Bye !
