Topic: deploying rails app linux apache2 cgi
I'm trying to deploy my rails app on Linux running Apache 2. I am able to run the app locally on my Windows machine with Apache 2 w/ no problems. The httpd.conf and .htaccess files on the Linux server are identical to the files on my Window machine (except for path)
relevant portion of Linux Apache httpd.conf
Options ExecCGI FollowSymlinks
Allow from all
I am able to run Webrick on the Linux server and I'm able to access the app, no problems. However, when I try to access the app through the Linux Apache 2 server, I get an error when I try to access http://jbdevrails.depot.com/dashboard/orders/open : 10.1.4.80 - - [10/Jan/2007:11:46:17 -0500] "GET /dashboard/orders/open HTTP/1.1" 500 68
I'm not sure why this is happening. I tried running the app with FastCGI, but didn't get that to work, so I switched everything back to using regular cgi. With the FastCGI, when I try to open the same page, the dispatch.fcgi file is displayed. Now I have removed all reference to fcgi and I am using regular cgi.
Thanks for any help!
