ROR - Apache - FastCGI / Can't see stylesheets or javascript

Folks …

I have been porting my app from dev environment on Webrick to Apache
with FastCGI. I have the app responding and pulling up the data, but it
is ignoring the “images”, “stylesheets”, “javascripts” directories
located in the public directory.

I’m running Apache under Suse Linux 9.x. Here is the information that I
have in my vhosts.conf file:

VirtualHost template:

Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.

The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known

server name.

<VirtualHost *:80>

   ServerAdmin [email protected]
   ServerName www.spro.com
   ServerSignature On

   DocumentRoot /srv/www/vhosts/www.spro.com/public/

   ErrorLog /log/www.spro.com-error_log
   CustomLog /log/www.spro-access_log combined

   HostnameLookups Off
   UseCanonicalName Off

   <IfModule mod_fastcgi.c>
   FastCgiServer \
    /srv/www/vhosts/www.spro.com/public/dispatch.fcgi \
    -initial-env RAILS_ENV=development -processes 10 \
    -idle-timeout 120
   </IfModule>

   <IfModule mod_userdir.c>
   UserDir public_html
       Include /etc/apache2/mod_userdir.conf
   </IfModule>

   <Directory /srv/www/vhosts/www.spro.com/public/>
   Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
       AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi
       AllowOverride All
       Order allow,deny
       Allow from all
   </Directory>

This is my first attempt at bringing a RoR application up under Apache2
utilizing FastCGI. It is my understanding that giving the full path
name in both DocumentRoot and Directory definitions should allow RoR to
find the stylesheets. If I load up Webrick instead of Apache, the
system works perfectly - I just need to figure this out.

Thanks in advance …

Could it be as simple as permissions ? Is www-data (or whoever Apache
runs as) allowed to read from that dir and subdirs ?

Alan …

All directories from Public on down have the same permissions “WWWRUN”
as user and “WWW” as group.

Are you relying on the .htaccess file generated by rails? If so, you
need to ensure that
<Directory /path/to/public>
AllowOverride FileInfo
Options FollowSymlinks

… is set in httpd.conf (or whatever your distro calls that file).

And always remember the apache error log.
