Hi all

I am trying to get my RoR application to work with Apache ver 2.0.52
on a Red Hat Linux server. All the scripts /links do work on Webrick,
but I am unable to get them through Apache. I am able to get static
index.html from public dir, but anything else gives me an errors:

1) http://myhost/my_app/dispatch.cgi
Routing Error
Recognition failed for "/dispatch.cgi"

2) http://myhost/my_app/images
403 -> You don't have permission to access /my_app/images/ on this

3) http://myhost/my_app/login
404 -> file not found
[client] File does not exist:

Here are my conf files:
Alias /my_app "/home/my_home/rails/my_app/public/"
Alias /my_app/ "/home/my_home/rails/my_app/public/"
<Directory /home/my_home/rails>
#also used with zero success: <Directory /home/my_home/rails/my_app>
    Options ExecCGI
    AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .rb
    Options +FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
