Problem deploying an app with passenger


I'm desperatly trying to install an app with phusion passenger. I've
already spent 2 days with no success, can somebody help me, please ?
Here is my problem :
I already installed phusion passenger with no problem. It's running on
apache2 on ubuntu 8.10.
I configured everything as mentioned on passenger's website, but i only
get a 404 error, whatever url i try...

Not enough information!

Have you renamed, or moved public/index.html

Have you set the route to the controller that gets the first request?

Have you read your log files (for rails and for apache)?

So many questions. Not enough information.



It usually means your app is failing. Check your log and debug.


You are not giving enough information, however, I have installed
passenger little time ago, If you "...installed phusion passenger with
no problem...." the only thing that could be wrong is your passenger

1- Have you edited your http.conf file, and added the lines that
passenger installed gives you? your http.conf file have to look
something like this:

LoadModule passenger_module /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/
PassengerRoot /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/passenger-2.0.3
PassengerRuby /usr/bin/ruby

<VirtualHost *>
    DocumentRoot /home/user/public_html/railsapp/public

NOTE: The "loadModule" line must be at the begining of your http.conf

2- The "ServerName" and "DocumentRoot" values are right?

3- Have you restarted apache?

4- If you are working with your local machine(localhost), you must
consider to configure the vhost file too. Here are som info(it is for
mac but will give you an idea

Please check, all this info, and verify that all are correct.


Another thing,

1- have you created all the databases that your app needs?
2- have you installed all the gems ect that your ap needs?

Check your log file

Thanks a lot for your support, guys.
It appears that actually i was messing with my apache config. Probably
because i didn't properly configure vhost file (my problem disappeared
since i finally bought a domain name ! )
Next time, i'll do better my home work before posting dumb questions :slight_smile:

Best regards.
