Has anybody succeed in getting Rails 3 to work in production?

Has anybody succeed in getting Rails 3 to work in production? I am
trying with Apache 2.2 and Passenger 2.2.12 but no luck. If you have
got Rails three to work in production on any server with any set up
could you please post the details (howto?) or a link to where such
information can be found.

All input gratefully received.

Hi Paul,

I'm running a test server in production environment with nginx as
front-end, ruby-1.9.1-p378 and one mongrel in the backend.
The script I'm currently using to start the application is as
following:

#!/bin/sh

export RAILS_ENV=production

# kill old server if running
if [ -f /home/csb/apps/ric/current/log/rackup.pid ]; then
  echo "Stopping old server instance..."
  kill `cat /home/csb/apps/ric/current/log/rackup.pid`
  sleep 2;
fi

# startup new server
echo "Starting new server instance..."
cd /home/csb/apps/ric/current
rackup -D -E production -p 8010 -P /home/csb/apps/ric/current/log/
rackup.pid /home/csb/apps/ric/current/config.ru

echo "DONE"

the export RAILS_ENV is needed because rackup seems to ignore the -E
option also I had to modify the server.rb file in the rack gem to keep
the application running in the background
I had to change the code to:

      if options[:daemonize]
        app.inspect
        daemonize_app
      end

where it used to be:

      daemonize_app if [:daemonize]

otherwise the process will just terminate if you call rackup -D I
opened an entry on the rack google group but never got any feedback.
