Hi everyone,
I am going crazy over here! :)
I just want to be able to use --clean with my mongrel_rails
cluster::start command.

my config file is in /etc/mongrel_rails/config.yml
and contains:
log_file: log/mongrel.log
port: 8000
pid_file: /var/run/mongrel_cluster/
servers: 2
environment: production

in the following post it says the init.rb script from mongrel_cluster
should create the var/run directory itself, but it does not seem to do
so ( I get the message:
!!! Path to log file not valid: log/mongrel.8001.log
mongrel::start reported an error. Use mongrel_rails mongrel::start -h
to get help)

log dir of my app)
it does not clean it up and still give the old message that a PID
already exists - i'm not sure if that's because it's not in /var/run
as I have seen different comments on this.

Any help would be appreciated...

etc/mongrel_rails/config.yml again but all it did was overwrite my
