Hi Michal,
You need to configure proxy balancer and the appropriate rewrite rules.

This blog post is one of the best sources for that information.


john thanks for the reply …
is the balancer a must? because i did follow everything which is
mentioned in the agile development book and they dont talk about the

many many thanks … it worked with this nice blog entry.
john you were right its a good one …

The balancer isn’t completely necessary. You can use the ProxyPass or
ProxyReverse (I don’t recall the exact config settings right now) to
all the requests to a single mongrel instance. However, this setup
really do well in a production environment - you’ll want a balancer and
mongrel_cluster eventually.
