Just wondering if anyone can give me some recommendations + pointers
on the best way to get Rails and Radiant running on a clients new
webserver. I’m fairly new to the rails stuff, this Radiant site is the
first thing I’ve done with rails, so I’m a bit of a noob when it
comes to installing rails, etc.
I have been developing their site locally on my iMac using Locomotive
- Lighttpd + MySQL, but their server is a Dell running a recent Fedora
Core. I know it has Apache+PHP+MySQL on it, but they have given me
access to install whatever I need. The server will probably only be
running the one Rails/Radiant site.
What I need to know is, what is the best setup to go with as far as
webservers, eg i have seen tutorials on getting Fedora running with
Apache2+FastCGI, or with Lighttpd. I have seen more recent articles
that say Mongrel is better than Lighttpd, but i haven’t seen tutorials
on getting Mongrel running on Fedora…
Any suggestions/technical information on the best way to approach
this? I realise this may be better directed at a more general Rails
list, but if there is a configuration that works good with Radiant,
that would be appreciated…
Also, once i get it running, what will be the best way to transfer my
development site to the new server?
Cheers, and thanks for any help…
