I'm on a shared host (Dreamhost to be exact).

I'm only allowed one mongrel instance per application (domain).

1) Are there any foreseeable problems with running just one mongrel?
They don't support mongrel_clusters unless I go through the hassle of
installing it all locally.


Also, I've read that serving static files with Apache is best for
letting mongrel do the rails stuff.


2) Is it even possible to set up apache proxy definitions from a
.htaccess file?

I'm on a shared host, and no root privileges.

DreamHost is now offering mod_passenger for Rails
applications. Probably, that's the best way out on that provider, even
if it leaves Mongrel out of the equation.
