Topic: Deply with Mongrel or fastcgi?
Does anyone have any thoughts on the best way to setup a production server for a Rails app?
My current thinking is to use Mongrel with Apache 2.2 mod_proxy_balancer. If using this method how many mongrel instances should you start? 2? If using this method, can you install more than one app on a server?
AFAIK, using fastcgi allows multiple applications on a server and this is what I'm using to develop the app and it seems fast enough - but I'm the only one using it and its important the apps run fast (obviously).
Any thoughts welcome
