VPS Distro Question

I’m going to be signing up for a rimuhosting vps tomorrow. In my
limited
linux experience I like Ubuntu (setup a dev server from scratch on it,
thats
the extent of my experience). Any red flags for using Ubuntu as a the
distro for a apache2.2/mysql/mongrel pack. I remember coming acrossed
something about it not being as easy to get apache2.2 on some distros…

I use Ubuntu to develop Mongrel, so you should be fine for compatibility
reasons, just make sure you follow the Mongrel Debian documentation
(Debian’s special).

What’s the preferred way to get Mongrel all running these days? Are most
people running the testing distro?

Hi folks,

In my schema I have

create_table “post”, :force => true do |t|
t.column “title”, :string, :limit => 16,

end

And in my view:

<%= form.text_field :title, :size => “16” %>

My question is… can I get rails to automatically know the field
size? So my view wont have the magic number “16”, it will just
magically “know”.

thanks

We use FreeBSD + a Debian DB box. I’ve also used Gentoo and nginx
proxying
to it with it.

Yay, worked it out. Tonypm’s recent post gave me a clue

For a column “x” in your database/model:

    <%= form.text_field :x, :maxlength=>User.columns_hash

[‘x’].limit %>

Looks a bit ugly… especially when you want to set other
properties… any ideas on how to clean it up?

Cheers

I would say Gentoo, but those who know me, know I’d be very biased. :slight_smile:

I used Gentoo, Mongrel and Pound. I’m looking into switching from pound
to
nginx though.

Gentoo is so easy to be very biased about!

Another VPS question - how does getting an IP/domain work? Could I
start
out just getting a vps with a static IP and then have a domain point to
it
once we get that ironed out?

Can you shed some more light on nginx ?
