Ruby-fcgi on Windows


#1

I’m getting ready to deploy a Ruby on Rails application on a Windows
server using Apache 2.0 and FastCGI. However, I’m having trouble
compiling the ruby-fcgi bindings for Windows. Does anyone know where
I can find some pre-compiled binaries, or at least a guide on how to
compile the bindings? If no binaries are available, is there a way to
use a pure ruby version, and if so how?

Thanks so much. You’re a life saver. I’ve been trying to get this to
work for months!
I am eternally grateful to you.

Omar - you might want to check this link. Someone else highly
recommended it awhile back.

There used to be a really good writeup here but alas the site seems to
have gone into the bit bucket. If anyone knows if this site has a new
domain name let me know.
