We are getting ready to launch our ROR application; the last item
remaining is the deployment platform. For testing, we had used Apache +
MOD_FastCGI. I am not that impressed with it; sometimes it has strange
effects. For example, when we start the application, for about 5 minutes
or so, the app is very unstable and it gets better over time.
My questions is … should I go with (1) mod_fastCGI or try (2) Lighttpd
OR (3)apache mod_proxy with mongrel. What are the pros and cons of these
three deployment platform. Also, are there any other solution. I would
love to hear from those who have their app in production.
