Topic: More deployment woes....
First some database issues:
I'm using PostGreSQL on FreeBSD. I installed 'gem install postgres" (after exporting the environmental variable mentioned at all the websites about FreeBSD/Rails/Postgres). The native driver builds without error or warning. However attempts to use it still have the "No such file to load -- postgres" error. If I install the less efficient "gem install postgres-pr" the database connectivity works. For now, I'm in an alpha test, so I can live with the "pure ruby" as opposed to the native driver, but I'ld like to get the better driver working. Does anyone have any idea where I should look?
Second, I've gotten a cluster of mongrels working, and can view the application on ports 8000, 8001, and 8002. When I uncomment the "#address: 127.0.0.1", commit and re-deploy, however, the three mongrels are still publicly viewable. I thought that changing to 127.0.0.1 was supposed to lock them down. Following a few other websites I tried changeing to address: localhost, and still the 3 mongrels are publicly accessible. How do I lockdown the mongrel_cluster? (Before I proceed onto the configuring the apache front end....)
