I want to host a rails app at mydomain.com/railsapp. For technical
reasons I have to leave mydomain.com on apache. This means that I need
to tell apache to proxy only requests for mydomain.com/railsapp to
lighttpd. I have deployed in a situation like this before around a year
and a half ago but it was a real pain. Lighttpd and rails have matured
a lot in the year and a half since I did that ugly deploy so I was
wondering if it has gotten any easier?
Example lighttpd.conf files, rails code samples, and general advice for
getting this to work would be great. The domain I am deploying to is
already hosted at TextDrive so I will be deploying there and using
webmin to configure apache and shell access to get to lighttpd.conf.
