I am very new to ruby, rails, and mongrel, so this may not make any
sense, but i figured i would ask it anyways.
I have been given the task of determining if rails is a good
transition for our company.
While my preliminary tests have been successful (i.e. installing
mongrel, deploying a test app, etc), i have to figure out how to run
our existing cgi scripts under our new environment.
Previously we were using apache + mod_perl, and my question is do i
still need to install mod_perl, or is mongrel optimized to handle perl
in a fast fashion?
secondly, how do i run a cgi script when running rails, do i simply
put a cgi-bin directory in my public directory under my rails app, or
is it more complicated than that (i.e. modifying my httpd.conf file to
point somewhere other than rails/mongrel)?
sorry for my lack of understanding of apache+rails+mongrel, but I am
learning as i go.
