Ubuntu/Apache/Eruby

I have an eruby application that I need to run on a machine with apache
(and also some Rails stuff, but I suspect that is not a problem), and I
am having a difficult time making the configuration work on Ubuntu that
works on CentOS for eruby:

AddType application/x-httpd-eruby .rhtml
#use which path:
Action application/x-httpd-eruby “/usr/bin/eruby”
AddType application/x-httpd-cgi .rhtml
#not really needed
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

#ScriptInterpreterSource Registry
#ScriptInterpreterSource registry

DirectoryIndex index.rhtml index.html index.htm
----snip----
The main problem appears to be that Ubuntu Apache2 doesn’t know about
the ‘Action’ directive, but presumably there is a canonical way to do
the configuration on Ubuntu. Anybody know?

Never Mind. I got it. I did some searches again, presumably with a
clear head this time, and came up with this example:

I had some problem finding any good information about this issue but got
it to work so I decided to share my knowledge.

The goal for this project is to configure apache so that it opens .rbx
files with mod_ruby and .rhtml with eRuby and preferably run eRuby
through mod_ruby for better speed.

First install:
sudo apt-get install ruby libapache2-mod-ruby eruby

Then activate the apache module (dont remember if this is done
automaticly)
sudo a2enmod ruby

Now the tricky part. Create a file in /etc/apache2/conf.d/ (preferably
‘ruby.conf’ or similar) with this content:

AddType text/html .rhtml

RubyRequire apache/ruby-run RubyRequire apache/eruby-run

Execute *.rbx files as Ruby scripts

<Files *.rbx>
SetHandler ruby-object
RubyHandler Apache::RubyRun.instance

Handle *.rhtml files as eRuby files

<Files *.rhtml>
SetHandler ruby-object
RubyHandler Apache::ERubyRun.instance

Then restart apache
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Thats it! (I think :))

You can test your installation with two files like these:
rubyTest.rbx
puts “

Hello World


eRubyTest.rhtml

<% puts "Hello World" %>

If someone uses this and think it works or if I forgot something, please
post it here. And if this is wrong forum for this kind of stuff, then
please move the thread to a better position. I couldnt find any.
