I was just trying to use Passenger to depoloy my rails application of my
Apache:2.2.3 (Debian) PHP:5.2.0-8+etch13 Phusion_Passenger/2.1.2 Server
but I get the following error:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was
unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, [no address given] and inform
them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done
that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error
Passenger mentioned that their errors are logged into apache’s error log
I looked into the Apache error log (tail /var/log/apache2/error.log):
[Sat Mar 14 12:54:08 2009] [notice] Apache/2.2.3 (Debian)
PHP/5.2.0-8+etch13 Phusion_Passenger/2.1.2 configured – resuming normal
[Sat Mar 14 12:54:18 2009] [alert] [client 188.8.131.52]
/var/www/current/public/.htaccess: Option FollowSymLinks not allowed
I don’t think it’s an Apache configuration issue because if I point to
the parent directory (/var/www/current/) instead of
(/var/www/current/public) I can see the files displayed.
Do you have any ideas what the problem might be or how I can dig more
about this problem.
