Re: [PhillyOnRails] Rails Diatribe

Look into railsmachine's plugin, railsmachine. It makes mongerl and apache set-up really really easy. Match that with a virtual dedicated (where you get root access and garaunteed ram and cpu time) from a reputable host like rimuhosting.com (refer me and we can be best friends) and you are set. no cofiguration headaches, no instability.

you will have to set it up that mongrel_rails restarts when the server reboots, but there are tutorials on the net.

I think a lot of people hold fastCGI against Rails.  What is the better solution?  I have been using mongrel for about a week.  For development it is noticably more speedy than ./script/server.  I am interested in using mongrel for deployment on a big app with a dedicated server, but what choice do I have if I deploy to just about anything other than a dedicated server?  It's especially bothersome for menial applications like typo (I mean that in the most affectionate way).  FastCGI is even worse on shared hosting setups, even the ones that support it (mine at least).

Of course none of this is RoR's fault, but fCGI does hurt its street cred a bit.

He holds the flakinees of fastCGI against rails, which is a stupid thing to do.  He also thinks that the people most benifiting from rails are the publishers. and here i thought it was the teams of small people doing big things...
