Hello everybody, I’ve been lurking and reading for a while and I think
I’m about a month from my first live Rails app, which I’m happy about
I’m currently battling through a truck load of questions about server
set-up and back-end things so the first question I would like your
opinion on is:
Does anybody have any thoughts or experience with different base
distributions of Linux and Rails performance?
Does it make a difference?
Which of the following choices would you recommend for setting up the
ideal rails server environment: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, Fedora Core
3, Debian or White Box Enterprise Linux 3?
(I’ve noticed on the lighttpd page, for example, that debian isn’t on
the list of ‘included’ distributions yet but am not sure if that means
it’s impossible to complie, can be compiled from the source RPM or just
makes it a bit more difficult).
