Can this work? Apache/FastCGI special case (?)

Hi everyone,

I have a website running, but would like to add a rails app to be
accessed as at a specific path of the application e.g.:
www.example.com/myrailsapp/

So I have apache configured (using virtualhost to redirect requests to
such address and port to my main website, but how can I modify this to
also point to my rails app, without messing up the main website. do I
need another virtualhost, what is the procedure?

plz, let me know if this can be done using mongrel easier, I don't have
any restriction.

You can do it easily with Apache and Mongrel if you have mod_proxy installed. You can look at my example in this thread:

You have to read both my replies for the complete solution. I haven't used Rails with FastCGI before so I don't know how to configure that setup.
