Is there any point in running Apache in front of Mongrel if you are
not running a Mongrel Cluster?
I have a small app with only a few users and currently just using
standalone Mongrel. I cant really see any advantage of putting it
Am I missing something?
Nope. If you're traffic isn't high enough to warrant having apache serve the static files, there's not much reason to do this.
But without a cluster you can only serve *one* rails request at a time. Again, if traffic isn't high enough this might not be a problem either.
But say your small app is a video archive... one user uploading a video will block all the other rails requests.
But if it's working out for you, there's no reason to change it now.
