I have installed Instantrails 1.4 and am interested in simply deploying such that someone can hit my site on port 80, via Apache, and be into my rails site. I'm not yet interested in setting up FastCGI, etc. I cannot change the web hosts file.
It seems that I can, from within InstantRails, go to "Congifugre Rails Apps," check off my app, then "Start with Mongrel". This works fine as long as I come into http://mysite:3000 but not when I come into http://mysite.
What am I missing about Instant Rails that is making it seem not-so-instant in the case of deployment here? Thanks, R. Vince
