I spent time searching web trying to get information on how to get Rails working under Apache+fastcgi. All I found was people saying that they can't make it work or some obscure instructions on how to compile this and that. Does anything stable similar to XAMPP exists for Ruby on Rails? If not, people should be warned upfront that they won't be able to use Ruby on Rail in production unless they have resources to commit for lab research, etc...

Dont know where you've been searching or what list you've been on, but plenty of people have Apache and FastCGI going. You may need to compile something, you may not. It depends on what OS you are using. For good ol' *nix type OSes check out: http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/HowtoSetup... For our friend windows, there is also http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/HowToInsta... In any case, I've gotten apache setup on both Windows and Linux with little trouble and, while not as fast as Lighttpd, it serves its purpose as a production server just fine for our site. -Nick
