Get 302 error while trying to deploy a ror site

Hi All,

I am trying to install a rails app ( openmind ) and i am getting 500
internal server on the webpage :
Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while
trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

While if i run dispatch.fcgi This is the result

]# ./dispatch.fcgi
Requiring REXML
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Set-Cookie: _session_id=0472eeda1383af0fd86902505f7508ee; path=/
Status: 302 Found
Location: http://:/account/login
X-Runtime: 2ms
Cache-Control: no-cache
Content-Length: 88

You are being redirected.</body

I guess there is some problem with .htaccess


General Apache options
AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
#Options +FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI

If you don’t want Rails to look in certain directories,

use the following rewrite rules so that Apache won’t rewrite certain



RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/notrails.*

RewriteRule .* - [L]

Redirect all requests not available on the filesystem to Rails

By default the cgi dispatcher is used which is very slow

For better performance replace the dispatcher with the fastcgi one


RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.fcgi [QSA,L]

RewriteEngine On

If your Rails application is accessed via an Alias directive,

then you MUST also set the RewriteBase in this htaccess file.

then you MUST also set the RewriteBase in this htaccess file.


Alias /myrailsapp /path/to/myrailsapp/public

RewriteBase /myrailsapp

RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^$ index.html [QSA]
RewriteRule ^([^.]+)$ $1.html [QSA]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.fcgi [QSA,L]

In case Rails experiences terminal errors

Instead of displaying this message you can supply a file here which

will be rendered instead


ErrorDocument 500 /500.html

------------------------- end .htaccess

My site is in a subfoler ( actually a link to another folder ) in
public_html .

Please help
