Props to Mongrel/Zed

Hi All,

After upgrading to 1.1 + on a production VPS which was using a
combination
of Apache 1.33 + SCGI serving up Rails 1.0 app across multiple domains I
ran
into some major instability problems which I could not pin down
(although
some very suspicious POSTs were showing up in the log files that can’t
have
been good). As an experiment I went with the new way of thinking Mongrel
and
it cleared up the instability issues instantly, had one rails app
running
for 2 weeks with no crashing (SCGI was falling over every couple of
days)

Absolutely painless setup; the only complication was I wanted the
PreserveHost directive running on 1.33 which required patching the build
of
Apache.

I’ll post up a full how to for those CPanel users out there on my blog
late
tonight…

Cheers

What did you need that directive for? Are you serving different vhosts?

+1 agreed. Zed has done a fabulous job making the deployment of a rails
app
via Mongrel as easy and painless as possible.

Extra props for actually acknowledging that there is a subset of us
using
Windows (some of us have no choice, guys!) by providing a dead simple
install-
rails-app-as-a-service script.

Well done, sir.

In a word - yes :slight_smile: PreserveHost isn’t in the standard 1.33 mod_proxy
source.

It’s sick just how smart that dude is.

Can you provide a link to this thread ? The ruby-forum search can’t
find it and neither can google :slight_smile:

Nah, it just looks like I’m smart because I can type fast. The 11th
finger is what gives me an advantage. :slight_smile:

I wish Zed would start blogging/writing again. :wink:
