Apache requirements

Must Apache be compiled with mod_fcgi to run Rails ?

Stuart

Nope, you can use Mongrel or just cgi. There are a few ways and right now Apache 2.2 with mod_proxy_balancer and Mongrel seem to be the “winning” solution.

At least, that’s the last I’ve heard.

Well I was about to switch hosts, because current didn’t offer Rails. But the reply to cancel
said they are now offering Rails, I’ll be the first. They said it was an CPanel addon.
At this point they have no clue how I should install, and I have some idea but not sure what they
need to do on their end.

Any blogs or tutorials around about doing it with mod_proxy_balancer and Mongrel ?
Additionally, when I upload my app I’ll be using the Mongrel included in my distribution (which is edge v. something )
