Execute as a service

Hello,

I am new in this mail list. I want to ask about the execution of the
Rails service.

I normally execute the rails process this way:

rails server

This way I can not log out and keep the service running. Is there any
way to execute as a service? something like apache2?
(/etc/init.d/apache2 start)?

Thanks and regards.

Try: rails server --help

Here's a quick overview with a lot of options: http://rubyonrails.org/deploy/

I used Passenger for my first sites, it was just about as easy as PHP deployment.

Thanks!

I execute as daemon (rails server -d), and it works well.

I read about Passenger, it looks really interesting.

Best regards.

I actually use Passenger standalone for development and Passenger on the
server for deployment. Works great for me.

I don't, however, typically run my server in development as a daemon
process. Instead I run it in a separate shell so that I can easily
monitor the development log as it displays in the terminal window. Then
I use the other shell to execute commands. So I just have two tabs in my
Terminal app... well actually three, where the third is running guard so
I can see the results of my texts as I develop.

Thanks Robert,

Do you use Passenger with Apache2? I want to try it. Could you guide
me with some steps?

Best regards.
