Hi, I'm running Fedora Core 5 Linux on an x86 machine with Apache 2.2. I'm trying to install Ruby on Rails using the instructions here (http://blog.eukhost.com/2006/09/30/ruby-on-rails/). If anyone has better instructions, please let me know! I was unable to install mod_fastcgi because of errors it was giving me. Skipping that step, I completed the rest of the steps, including echo "FastCgiIpcDir /tmp/fcgi/" >> /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf echo "AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi" >> /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf echo "FastCgiWrapper On" >> /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf but got this error when I restarted my Apache 2 server ... Syntax error on line 448 of /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf: Invalid command 'FastCgiIpcDir', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration Any ideas what's going wrong? Thanks, - Dave

Hi Dave, the error is probably because you couldn't install mod_fastcgi. If you want to go with Apache2, there are a few other options besides fastcgi to get Ruby on Rails going. Apache2 + fcgid or Apache2 + Mongrel. The last option is the most popular at the moment. I have a couple of links up at http://www.railshostinginfo.com/static/setting_up_... that point to some good tutorials that should get you up and running very quickly. Kind regards, Nick Snels

Thanks. These are some good links, but what I can't seem to find is what directives I need to put in my httpd.conf file to recognize pages written in ruby and pass those along to the correct interpreter. Do you have a tutorial with the step-by-step setup? Thanks, -Dave

So long as your document root is pointed at /public and .htaccess is turned on you should be OK (unless you are configuring for something fancy like Mongrel). On Jan 24, 9:50 am, "laredotorn...@zipmail.com"
