Rails "Application Error" with apache and mod_fcgid


#1

Hello,

I have a gentoo system that I am trying to remotely develop rails
applications on using apache and fcgi. I created the simple hello world
example from Dave T.’ book to test the system and I receive an
“application error” when I try to go to the page. I can startup webrick
and use links to view the page just fine, but nothing doing through
apache.

I have looked at many tutorials that google has turned up and can’t seem
to find what I’m doing wrong. Here are the versions I’m using:

apache-2.0.55-r1 mod_fcgid-1.07-r1 ruby-fcgi-0.8.6 mysql-4.1.19 mysql-ruby-2.7 DBD-mysql-2.9007 rails-1.1.2 actionmailer-1.2.1 actionpack-1.12.1 actionwebservice-1.1.2 activerecord-1.14.2 activesupport-1.3.1 rake-0.7.1

My apache httpd.conf file has these lines added:

LoadModule fcgid_module modules/mod_fcgid.so AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi

My vhosts.conf file has:

<virtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot /var/www ServerName myServer.com ErrorLog /var/www/apache.log
&lt;Directory "/var/www"&gt;
    Order deny,allow
    Options none
    AllowOverride none

</Directory>
<Directory “/var/www/rails”>
Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride all
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

In my rails public folder I’ve added:

AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.fcgi [QSA,L]

I tried running “ruby -d dispatch.fcgi” to see what the problem is and I
get a long list of complaints that I can’t pinpoint whats wrong. Here
is that output:

Is there anything I’m missing? Thank you for any help you can provide!

I am having the exact same problem - were you able to find a solution?

This command fix this problem for me. I don’t know, this is good
solution, bud works.

chmod -Rcv 777 /your_rails_app

Thanks for that - I tried it and it still doesn’t work.

I also tried giving similar permissions to the other directories related
to rails (the ruby directory, directories that hold the fcgi/fcgid files
etc…) and still nothing.
