Mongrel problem


Hi there

I have installed mongrel using rubygems and I have filled the mongrel
configuration file in my rails config directory, which is:

cwd: /var/www/my_http_dir/
log_file: log/mongrel.log
port: “8100”
environment: production
pid_file: tmp/pids/
servers: 2

The problem is that when I try to start mongrel using the command line
order ‘mongrel_rails mongrel::start -C config/mongrel_cluster.yml’
appears this error message

** Ruby version is not up-to-date; loading cgi_multipart_eof_fix
** Loading settings
(they override command line).
!!! Unknown configuration setting: servers
mongrel::start reported an error. Use mongrel_rails mongrel::start -h
to get help.

Can anybody tell me what is happening? Why servers params is not ok?

Thanks in advance




First… First I would recommend that you use thin and not mongrel…

Second… Whats your ruby version? ruby -v

Third… are you able to start one mongrel like so mongrel_rails start
-d ?
