Webrick and Lighttpd


#1

I just went thru the hivelogic article to get everything installed on my
new mac. I then decided to run thru the ADC Rails article. In the
article it says to run ‘script/server’ which will start lighttpd if
installed or webrick if not. When I do it, I get webrick not lighttpd. I
followed the hivelogic article word for word and everything else seems
to be working fine. Is there something I need to do to the
lighttpd.config file to make this work? The ADC article makes it sound
like it should just work.

help?

Make sure lighttpd is in your PATH.

From the bash prompt:

which lighttpd

Returned:

/usr/local/sbin/lighttpd

That looks right to me.

Had the same problem and solved it this way:

  1. Open the Terminal
  2. Instead of “mate ~/.bash_login”, type “sudo pico
    ~/.bash_login” (your file will show empty here, meaning the PATH
    wasn’t saved correctly last time around)
  3. Copy/Paste the following lines:

export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:$PATH"
export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH"

If you plan on installing RMagick, you’ll probably want to add this
line too:

export PATH="/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH"

  1. Type “Control-X” and save the file
  2. You might need to chmod 777 the .bash_login file, I’m not sure
    anymore.
  3. Open a new Terminal window and query “ruby --version” (it should
    show “ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [powerpc-darwin8.5.0]”)
  4. Make a new rails application somewhere with “rails myappname”
  5. cd myappname
  6. script/server

It should now read:
=> Booting lighttpd (use ‘script/server webrick’ to force WEBrick)
=> Rails application started on http://0.0.0.0:3000
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server (see config/lighttpd.conf for options)

Best regards

Fixed.
Looks like I forgot to install FCGI.

Thanks Peter, but that wasn’t it. I opened .bash_login with pico and
both lines are there and typed correctly.
I did a control-x and tried script/server but it still started webrick.
