hii all, Am running apche as frontend to mongrel ,i added these line in
Apache's httpd.conf file

ServerName src

DocumentRoot  C:/InstantRails-2.0-win/rails_apps/src/public/

ProxyPass / http://localhost:3000/

ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:3000
</VirtualHost>

Now in my application i have to downlaod large stream and i don't want
rails to serve it,i would like apache to server this request but with
current setting rail i serving this request.

this is my code for download

filename = "#{@stream.location}"

response.headers['Content-Type'] = "application/force-download"

response.headers['Content-Disposition'] = "attachment;
filename=\"#{File.basename(filename)}\""

response.headers["X-Sendfile"] = filename

response.headers['Content-length'] = File.size(filename)

render :nothing => true

with current setting am able to downlaod files of 1.1. gb only once to
download it again i have to restart both mongrel and apache...
