Problem with passenger

Hello everybody.

I’m trying to run an app with passenger, but having some problems…

In apache2.conf I’m using:

Include /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/[^.#]

Then at /etc/apache2/sites-available/cadamostras I have


DocumentRoot /home/cassio/web/cadamostras/public
RailsPoolIdleTime 650
ErrorLog /var/log/cadamostras/error.log
LogLevel info


I ran a2ensite cadamostras to enable it.

But when I point my browser to or at I get this error:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator,
[no address given] and inform them of the time the error occurred, and
anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Apache/2.2.3 (Ubuntu) Phusion_Passenger/1.0.5 Server at Port 80

Looking at /var/log/cadamostras/error.log I can see this:

Mon Jun 23 15:19:17 2008 [client] **
Unexpected error in Passenger: Cannot spawn application
‘/home/cassio/web/cadamostras’: Could not write ‘spawn_application’
command to the spawn server: Broken pipe (32)

does anyone knows what can be the problem?

thank you!

Their forum is probably best place to get help...
