I'm looking into mod_ruby because the Apache+Mongrel combination that I'm currently using seems to have big overhead and somewhat slow, but I don't quite understand a few things: 1) If I move from the Apache+Mongrel combination to Apache+mod_ruby, will my overhead decrease? Significantly? (definitions are up for debate) 2) Will I have to change any Ruby code? 3) In regards to the "shared interpreter" problem: I run multiple Rails apps on the same server; however, does this mean if I define constant A in one app and then also in another app I will get errors and/or it will be overriden? Let me know if I need to clarify any question. Also, feel free to voice your opinions on the "best" Rails webserver setup (for shared hosting environments).
