A client of mine has godaddy.com as a web host. I insisted on using rails for dev, and the client agreed. Godaddy is absolutely horrible w/ their rails support and I have one remaining question. I've been able to deploy the app but they way they have hosting setup I must have the application below the root directory in some other directory

www.ex.com/useless/

how can I have www.ex.com point to where i have the data. Currently godaddy doesn't allow a symbolic link to be created at the root level, it must have a name. For example useless => real_rails_app_dir.

Any ideas, thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom,
did you try setting with base_url or mod_alias?
