Problem with Apache 2.0 and mod_fcgid config


#1

I am using the following configuration for my server, and getting some
very strange behavior. I can use mod_fcgid to access the cookbook
app, but whenever I try it with my app, apache just returns the source
code of dispatch.fcgi as text. Any ideas what I may be doing
incorrectly? I used a copy of the virtual host for my app and changed
the server name to cookbook. If I do a diff of the .htaccess,
dispatch.fcgi, and dispatch.rb between my app and the cookbook,
they’re exactly the same.

Apache 2.0
fcgi 2.4.0
mod_fcgid 1.10
mysql 4.1
ruby 1.8.5
rails 1.2.3

Thanks,
Todd

Virtual Host file

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName pm.arocksoftware.com
  SetEnv RAILS_ENV production
  DocumentRoot /var/www/rails/pm/public/

#  TODO custom rolling logs

  <Directory /var/www/rails/pm/public/>
    Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks

    AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

        AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi
  </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Todd -

Where the default application/public/.htaccess file says

AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi

Change it to read

AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi

This is a configuration difference between mod_fastcgi and mod_fcgid.

Good luck,
