hi, im just starting learning ruby on rails.. and plan to create a web
app this year. im about to commit to a new apache server (nothing
special - just a 'pizzabox') running fedora core 4 / mysql. this is
for existing php/mysql sites.  question is.. id obviously like to
install them both at the same time.. so i can run ruby-on-rails sites,
and plain php sites from the same box. seems like an obvious
question.. but as with obvious questions.. they often get
overlooked :)

there is a lot of detailed instructions about various server
configurations.. such as:

speed.. at the mo is no important. just that it works. the box is 3ghz
athlon 64/1gb and all the rest are using very little overhead.

any advice? i can do ssh/CLI and install modules etc. im not great..
but i get there.

any help appreciated.

I can't see any issues here.  If you're using apache2 you can use
mod_proxy/balance to pass requests for a specified virtual host on to
a mongrel cluster.  Look at
apache.html for details on this.

As for deploying and maintaining, check out Capistrano (http:// or Google: deploying rails

Hope that helps,
