Mongrel1.1.6 Installation not working with Ruby 1.9.1 in Win

Hi There,

I am facing with this problem where I am trying to install mongrel in my
dev env having developed an application with Ruby 1.9.1, rails 2.3.5 and
in Windows. When I use WeBrick the aplication works perfectly. But I
wanna try running this app with either mongrel or thin. But bad luck,
none of them is working. I wil try to explain all the thins I did to
finally arrive at the error. Please do help me in this.

Installation on Mongrel :

  1. Googling enlightned me that Ruby 1.9.1 supports only mongrel-1.1.6
    version. So I had downloaded the mongrel 1.1.6 version from
    http://github.com/radar/mongrel URL.
  2. Running the gem install mongrel-1.1.6.gem gives me the following
    error.

me get the Ruby Development Tolkit and install accordingly from the URL

But still noluck.

Comming to thin server, this is another adventure.

Installation of thin server went on fine.
gem list thin
*** LOCAL GEMS ***
thin (1.2.7 x86-mswin32)

Later when starting of the server, I faced some issue as below.

[NOTE]
You may encounter a bug of Ruby interpreter. Bug reports are welcome.
For details: http://www.ruby-lang.org/bugreport.html

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual
way.
Please contact the application’s support team for more information.

=================================================================

Have checked with different versions of eventmachine. Donno if there is
a special version for Ruby 1.9.1 version for windows.


Please do help me in this regard as I am in stress to implement the
application in the production environment.

Thanks and Regards,
Sandy …

Hello,

For either mongrel or thin to install, they need a Ruby installation
capable of compiling extensions.

The error you’re receiving is clearly that, the inability of your
installation to compile.

I would suggest you use RubyInstaller version of 1.9.1 in combination
with our DevKit.

You can find more information and even details of this in our website
along with tutorials:

http://rubyinstaller.org/

Something to note: that specific repository is not the oficial Mongrel
one.

Version 1.1.6 never existed, and fauna holds the official codebase,
which is compatible with Ruby 1.9.1 but not newer Rails:

Hi Luis,

Thanks verymuch for the lead. I got them installed and things are going
on well. But I am still in a fix. I am thinking of using THIN server for
my production mode. But I think it would be good if I have a cluster of
servers running so that it will be easy to reproduce a linux env. But
the bad thing is that I am using a WINDOWS machine, (in this case) so no
demonization, no clusters or any useful things which we can do in the
wonderful linux.

So please can you suggest a way of acheiving this in the WINDOWS
machine. Or is it possible to use the Apache + multiple (Thin / Mongrel)
servers combination in the WINDOWS machine.

Regards,
Sandy.

Hello,

Before suggesting something, please read all the details that the
original poster made available. He is running Windows where nginx is
not native or can’t be installed as a Windows Service.

Also checkout nginx (http://nginx.org/) for your application.

You’re right and I was wrong:

http://nginx.org/en/docs/windows.html

I remember back in 0.6 only cygwin support was available.

Is good to mention, as the documentation says that Windows support is
not up to *nix counterpart.

Hi All,

Going through the NGINX documentation, I learn that
“…nginx/Windows runs as a standard console application, not a service
…”

So I feel that both thin and NGINX server the same purpose in the
windows environment. Please do correct me if I am wrong.

By the way I am facing an error when I am trying to proxy the thin
server via the Apache server. I am getting the DNS failed

======================================================

Like this the same error is repeated for all the public folder
renderings (Images, Javascripts, css).

The modified conf file additions are pasted as below.

===================================================

ServerAlias www.example.org

RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

ProxyPass / http://www.example.org:3000
ProxyPassReverse / http://www.example.org:3000

I feel there is some way of allowing these public folder elements to the
website. Please rescue me once again please.

Hi Friends,

By the way I am facing an error when I am trying to proxy the thin
server via the Apache server. I am getting the DNS failed

======================================================
[Tue Aug 24 23:14:34 2010] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] proxy: DNS lookup
failure
for: www.sssmh.org:3000javascripts returned by /javascripts/jquery.js,
referer:
http://www.sssmh.org/

I found the solution for the DNS lookup issue. Finally, as usual, there
was this small thing “/”, I forgot after the

Previously, I forgot to put the “/” after the URL
http://www.example.org:3000”, so was not ale to resolve the URL like
http://www.example.org:3000stylsheets

.

ProxyPass / http://www.example.org:3000
ProxyPassReverse / http://www.example.org:3000
ProxyPreserveHost on


After inserting the “/” after the URL, it became
http://www.example.org:3000/ and the corresponding stylesheets URL
became
http://www.example.org:3000/styleseets.

.

ProxyPass / http://www.example.org:3000/
ProxyPassReverse / http://www.example.org:3000/
ProxyPreserveHost on


Now I am trying to find if there is a way to launch the thin server as a
service in the windows environment, if not as a cluster :). Please do
suggest some things, so that I get some leads and take it forward.

Regards,
Sandy.
