I don't know if this is really the right forum to be asking about
Rails deployment, but just in case someone has experience with this...
I'm attempting to deploy a rails site for the first time, using
mongrel, mongrel clusters, and capistrano. So far, I have been able to
deploy the files to the site and start up the mongrel server, viewing
the files on port 3000.
The problem happens when I go to fire up the clusters. From the
command line, they appear to be running fine, showing up when I do a
'ps aux | grep mongrel'. But when I try to view in a browser, they
don't show up.
I have add to my httpd.conf file to look like this:
ProxyPass / http://127.0.0.1:80
ProxyPassReverse / http://127.0.0.1:8000
The symlink setup by Capistrano works, so I don't think it's that.
One strange thing: At one point, the files were visible on the
8000-80003 ports, but I noticed they were pointing to a specific cap
release. Once that release was cleaned up from the subsequent file
releases, the pages broke. I only mention this because, although I've
redone the cap setup, I wonder if this is a related issue that still
I'm really new to to rails deployment, so any thoughts/feedback are
