Someone mentioned it, but the option you want is -C to give it a config
file. The config file is currently not well documented (which I’m
as we speak), but basically it takes each of the long command line
as hash items to a YAML file.
If you are serious about doing a configuration based deployment, you are
probably also serious about managing a cluster of mongrel servers. If
is the case, then check out the mongrel_cluster gem from Bradley Taylor
railsmachine.net. It basically handles the config files, starts,
etc. for a cluster of mongrel processes.
You can get this by doing gem install mongrel_cluster. There was a post
recently about it, but I’m going to also have docs on it “real soon
There is an additional option for the mongrel hackers out there -S which
lets you use a “mongrel script”. This is for advanced folks only
It basically let’s you use the Configurator to add your own spiffy
Hope that helps.
