Anyone figured out how to get rails/fastcgi to run on Resin. I assume it would be similar to PHP, which there are directions here: http://www.caucho.com/resin-3.0/thirdparty/php.xtp One thing that confuses me is that it wants a server address: <server-address>localhost:8002</server-address> Apparently you start the php process, like this: php -b 8002 And then the PHP process listens on that port. Is that how you would do it with rails? If so, what process do you start?

not entirely familiar with resin, but rails as an app server listens on 3000 for requests. This can be overridden with -p to script/server.. i.e., script/server -p 8002 -e production or something like that adam

If so, what process do you start? The equivalent of the php command is probably: script/spawner --port=8002 --instances=1 This will start a Rails FCGI server on port 8002. You'll need to have lighttpd around to run this command though. The script uses the spawn-fcgi command that is included with lighttpd.

There's no need to fire up WEBRick (the process that listens on port 3000) or lighttpd in that case. You want the dispatch.fcgi script in the public/ directory of the app. There is an example parallel installation of FCGI PHP and rails on lighttpd here, which may help: http://textsnippets.com/posts/show/299 There's an example of configuring rails fcgi to listen on a port rather than a socket here: http://defendem.com/read/chapter/6 But I don't know how current that is...

Even if you get Resin to talk to your Rails app through FastCGI, from looking at the Resin code, you are limited to a single FastCGI process per app, since Resin only takes a single host/port, and Rails only runs with a single process per port. I think Resin's FastCGI support is designed for minimal use of functionality you can't get any other way, not for full scale app hosting.

Isn't that WEBrick that listens in port 3000? I thought WEBrick was only for development?

So in order to use FastCGI with Resin, you would have to use lighttpd as well?
