RE: ROR Production issue


#1

The only way I know to handle this is by hacking your dispatch.fcgi.
This is a real problem on Dreamhost.

require File.dirname(FILE) + “/…/config/environment”
require ‘fcgi_handler’

fix for random 500 errors

class MyHandler < RailsFCGIHandler
SIGNALS = {
‘TERM’ => :exit_now,
}

def exit_now_handler(signal)
dispatcher_log :info, “ignoring request to terminate immediately”
end
end

end fix for random 500 errors

original handler

RailsFCGIHandler.process!

MyHandler.process!


Also consider a cron job to periodically hit one of your non-cached
actions every so often to keep the application “fresh”.
