Switchtower to Red Hat with Lighttpd


It looks and acts like it should all work, but after I run a “rake
deploy”, Lighttpd never responds to another request. I have to go
and kill and restart Lighttpd, which sort of defeats the purpose of
using Switchtower.

Is anyone else having similar problems?


Have you looked at the ligthttp logs ?

If you are using fcgi, my guess is that fastcgi might be crashing after
the deploy. It could be something in your dispatch.fcgi or it could be a
permission problem in your public dir ?

Hope this helps…


I set up the whole thing using SwitchTower. Does anyone know of
permissions problems in the public dir when SwitchTower has set up
the deployment?
