Topic: Mongrel/Apache Proxy Problem

Hello All,

    I have followed the deployment instructions in the Agile Web Development book as closely as possible.  I have a working CVS repository, capistrano, migrations, and mongrel.  I know mongrel is working on the server because I get the proper response when I access port 8000 on the server using curl.  However, I can't get there from the outside world.  I get this in my browser:

Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.
Apache/2.2.4 (Fedora) Server at Port 80

Here is what is in my /var/log/httpd/error_log file:

[Tue May 15 01:03:16 2007] [notice] SELinux policy enabled; httpd running as context user_u:system_r:httpd_t:s0

I have disabled all firewalls I can find.  Perhaps there is one hiding somewhere.

Any help would be appreciated.



Re: Mongrel/Apache Proxy Problem

Looks like SELinux was the culprit.  Had to do this following to allow httpd to talk to mongrel:

setsebool httpd_can_network_connect true
