Hi Guys, I'm running Typo on Dreamhost with shared hosting. Apparently, this is a problem, because I keep getting 500 errors, and it used to be only sometimes, but then it started getting worse and worse, and now it's 100% of the time. I've scoured Google for this problem, and it looks like it's a problem with Fast CGI on shared hosting. I've tried everything to fix it, but to no avail. So my question is, would it possibly help to make Typo use CGI instead of Fast CGI? If so, how can I do this? Thanks in advance.

You really don't want to run Rails apps as CGIs; it takes 5+ seconds to start up, so *every* request will take multiple seconds to fulfill. If you want to see, change the 'dispatch.fcgi' line in the .htaccess to use dispatch.cgi, assuming that the CGI dispatcher hasn't been deleted out of public/. Scott

Ooh, that sounds bad. Okay, thanks for the reply.
