Hello, I wonder what would be the most stable production runtime environment for a rails application on Unix/Linux. I am not very fond of FastCGI indeed, since it's not seen any further developement lately. What are your experiences e.g. with the mongrel server? Has anybody used it for production? What are the alternatives? May be some fine lad could just point me to web site dealing with real live production examples. Greetings Michael Kastner

lighttpd and fcgi will probably give you the best performance at the moment. Some people are proxying mongrel behind lighty, butI have not tried this in production On Thursday, March 30, 2006, at 8:56 AM, Michael Kastner wrote: >production? >_______________________________________________ >Rails mailing list >Rails@lists.rubyonrails.org >http://lists.rubyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/rails Mikkel Bruun www.strongside.dk - Football Portal(DK) nflfeed.helenius.org - Football News(DK) ting.minline.dk - Buy Old Stuff!(DK)

I'm now using the latest version of Mongrel (0.3.12) in production, and so far - after about two days - it's holding up fine; just as well as scgi, but it performs better. Previous versions of Mongrel didn't work for me in production, but with the latest I haven't experienced any of the prior problems. I also have a site using fastcgi, but it's slower, especially when it hasn't been accessed for a while. Joe

You dont't happen to use apache by any chance?

Well, I am stuck with apache for the time being :-(

Yeah, I use Apache on another server. As with Lighty, it can also easily proxy requests to Mongrel (which I haven't gotten around to doing on that server - it currently uses scgi). I don't know how proxy load balancing - like can be done with Lighty - would be done, but it must be possible. Joe

Apache 2.2 has mod_proxy_balancer. http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_proxy_balancer.html "This module requires the service of mod_proxy. It provides load balancing support for HTTP, FTP and AJP13 protocols".
