Step-by-step instructions for rubyworks & radiant setup

Hello everybody,

because I have to setup radiant&rubyworks installations again and again,
I made a step-by-step instruction list for setting up debian, mysql and
rubyworks (in a vmware) and how to install radiant on top of this.

I hope you like it:

What kind of experience have you had with rubyworks? Are there any
valid
reasons to consider changing from a load balanced mongrel setup?

Chris,

What kind of experience have you had with rubyworks? Are there any valid
reasons to consider changing from a load balanced mongrel setup?

My experiences with rubyworks was 90% positive. It’s a very reliable and
easy to install enviroment.

some minor issues:

  • not everything is available for all distributions, especially I
    couldn’t
    get rmagick running on debian 64bit (should be fixed soon)
  • monit supports sending email when server are being restarted (because
    they don’t respond anymore). But the (stable) version used in rubyworks
    doesn’t support smtp authentification.
  • for a high load enviroment there should be an additional webserver
    which
    delivers the static content. This is missing in rubyworks right now (but
    one developer told me that they plan this for the next major release)

The pro and cons of haproxy for load balancing are discussed here:
http://rubyworks.rubyforge.org/manual/haproxy.html

But even with these minor issues, rubyworks is still an pleasure to work
with. Everything works out of the box and is preconfigured in a good
way.

best regards,
J.F.
