Whats the best way to do this

I am adding a forum to my rails app, huge number of controllers,
views, models, and tables. What is best practice here? Just add all
the controllers, etc to my current app? Modularize all the
controllers/models/views into forum modules? Run the forum as a
seperate app? Thanks for any advice.


Personally I’d run it as a separate app. If your expecting lots of
traffic on the forum, it’s easier if it’s a separate app to maintain
it all on it’s own. As it will be on it’s own mongrel process etc.
