I want my website to include a mixture of static HTML pages, RAILS apps,

So what web server do you recommend? Apache 1.3.x? Apache 2.x? Should
I use mod_ruby or fastcgi? What does RAILS integrate best with?
Thanks for any suggestions.
This is a loaded responce because I am looking for comments on my
but my solution has certainly been working for me.
With Apache 2.0.6 and Rails 1.0.0, I run my Rails apps under the WEBrick
default on a non public port. I then have Apache direct Rails app
to that port on localhost. I am not running fastCGI just normal stock
Apache with no mods. I have even done this with WEBrick running on a
separate box on my LAN where Apache is on an OS X system and WEBrick is
a linux boxen.
Now … I do not get a ton of hits and I would guess there is a scale
here. But it has worked for me with moderate load.
