I usually develop using nginx/mongrel and deploy on the same platform.
In the past I’d develop on webrick and deploy on lighttpd and would
(rarely) run into situations where code worked on webrick but not on
Now I’m in a situation where the client has requested Apache/Mongrel
while I’m developing on Nginx/Mongrel. Since the Rails side is handled
by mongrel, is there any chance that the front-end webserver difference
will cause the code to act differently? If so I’ll probably just set up
another dev environment to mimic the deploy platform.
