Hi all,

I haven't installed a new app for a while...and this is driving me nuts

I uploaded my app to dreamhost with capistrano and ran the migration
with no
problems (after manually putting activeresource in railties)

but when I try to run the dispatcher I get:

DISPATCHER FAILSAFE RESPONSE (has cgi) Tue May 29 20:13:30 -0700 2007
  Status: 500 Internal Server Error

Is this a chmod/chown issue???

cheers
