Problem starting mongrel in windows

Hi everybody,
I was trying to get rails applications deployed in my pc(windows vista),
and I had some problem trying to start mongrel web server, and I have no
clue as to how and why it is not working.
I have installed ruby, rubygems, rails, mysql and mongrel, the last
three as rubygems. I could run the ‘rails’ command to and create an
application with the folder structure and all. But when I tried to start
the mongrel, I get the following error message.

F:\ROR\sources\hello>mongrel_rails start -d
C:/ruby/jruby-1.1.3/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in
require': no such file to load -- win32/service (LoadError) from C:/ruby/jruby-1.1.3/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require. rb:27:inrequire’

`load’
from c:\ruby\jruby-1.1.3\bin\mongrel_rails:19

Also, is there any way to keep mongrel live and running?? I tried to
install it as a service as mentioned in the website with the following
command: gem install mongrel_service and it mentioned that 1 gem was
installed, but I don’t see any service with the name “mongrel” or
“mongrel_rails” running in the list of services. I am new with mongrel
so please do help me.

Thanks,

To keep it short:

You’re using JRuby, not Matz Ruby (MRI) so:

mongrel_service gem will not work, since it depends on win32-service,
which is only Windows (not Java).
You’re using a old version of mongrel_service (0.1) which definitely
will not work as expected with latest Rails and Mongrel.

Daemonize (-d) otpion requires fork functionality, which is not
available in Windows (neither MRI or JRuby or any Ruby for Windows
implementation).

Also, is there any way to keep mongrel live and running?? I tried to install
it as a service as mentioned in the website with the following command: gem
install mongrel_service and it mentioned that 1 gem was installed, but I
don’t see any service with the name “mongrel” or “mongrel_rails” running in
the list of services. I am new with mongrel so please do help me.

mongrel_rails service::install --help

That is clearly documented in mongrel site:

Thanks, Luis, for making me see that. Indeed I was using jruby’s gems to
install all the applications. When I installed anything using the gem
command, it was the gem under the jruby folder that was being executed.
I
had to changed the precedence of the entries of jruby and ruby in the
path(environment variable) and do all the installs again and mongrel
runs
smooth.

great!!!
