Topic: Mongrel, Apache, lighttpd, webrick
Ok so now I am really confused whith all these servers, options, configurations and ports.
I want to be able to run multiple rails apps in my local machine (running mac osX) but I am lost whith all these different servers.
I was using webrick locally but then I downloaded typo and typo needed mongrel. Now i can't run typo nor the app I was working with. But I can run instiki with webrick. Adittonallny, I have a -broken- installation of lighttpd. This is making my head spin.
I am not really concearned now about the production server. I presume I can leave all that configuration to my hosting provider (I just signed up with site5, for the time beeing) What I want for now is the capability to run multiple apps at the same time without having to stop, waste time reconfiguring apache or installing yet another server. That would just make the learning procees easier for me. Download some code, run it, read it, rewrite it, run it again, jump to another app, repeat the process, jump back... you know how it is. I have not been able to do this so far.
Some light please.
