Mongrel PID Issues

I finally got my app to deploy using Capistrano, but now I cannot get
Mongrel to run on the server this is the error I keep getting:

!! PID file log/mongrel.8000.pid does not exist

try making the ‘log’ directory writable for everyone…

chmod g+w,o+w log

I found that the defaults for the location of the PID files seemed to
differ between start and stop. I “solved” that problem by specifying
the exact (relative) location of the pid file for both startup and
shutdown. The parts of my /etc/init.d/mongrel file are below:

function startup() {
host=127.0.0.1
for port in 8000 8001 8002; do
mongrel_rails start --daemonize -e production --port $port -
a $host --pid tmp/pids/mongrel.${port}.pid -c ${1:-$BASEDIR}
done
}

function shutdown() {
cd ${1:-BASEDIR}
for pidfile in tmp/pids/mongrel*.pid; do
mongrel_rails stop --pid $pidfile -c ${1:-$BASEDIR}
done
}

I hope this helps you. You might also look at mongrel-cluster (as I
should one day) to manage a pack of mongrels.
