Webrick hangs following periods of inactivity

I’m using WEBrick as my webserver with Redmine. I start the WEBrick
server in the morning using the command script/server webrick -e
production. The server starts and I am able to access the contents of
the server through the Redmine client. When I come in the following
morning and try to access Redmine, it appears that the server hangs and
the screen doesn’t navigate to a Redmine page.

I have looked through all Redmine logs and haven’t found anything. I
have two questions

  1. Has anyone run into this issue before with WEBrick?
  2. How do I enable logging and in what location does the default logging
    file live?
  3. Can someone help me troubleshoot this problem?
