Yet Another Apache/FastCgi Setup Issue


#1

I have set up FastCGI on the server and added 2 servers/processes and
increased the timeout from 30seconds to 60seconds. I think I did
that properly because I now have to wait the full 60 seconds like
clockwork until I get the “Rails application failed to start” when I
browse to my URL. Before it was 30 seconds like clockwork.

When I run “ruby dispatch.fcgi” I get the following:

[root@server public]# ruby dispatch.fcgi
[root@server public]#

I used to get an error message about a plug-in issue but I
re-installed that plug-in and the error message went away.

I also installed the fcgi gem but it gave me some error about not
being able to create the RDoc. But it did say it installed
successfully. I’ve also uninstalled the gem, gotten a gem-not-found
type of error, and then reinstalled and that error went away. So, I’m
also pretty sure I got that part done too.

I should also mention that the application also works fine when
running in CGI. It’s just when I switch to fcgi in .htaccess when
rails “failed to start”. I thought maybe it was the mysql
old-style-password thing but it does work fine with the database with
only CGI.

But, when running “ruby dispatch.fcgi” I get in fastcgi.crash.log the
following:

<fastcgi.crash.log>

Any ideas? I am so stuck!
