Remove 12002 from http://www.projectbidding.com:12002/account/index

Hi,

How can i remove 12002 from the URL http://www.projectbidding.com:12002/account/index
i am using ruby on rails. I just need to have my url
http://www.projectbidding.com/account/index.

Please help me on this

Well, I suppose the snarky answer is run your listener on port 80 (the default for the http protocol), but since that may not be helpful, let me guess what you really need.

You're in a controller and want to construct that URI from the request:

"#{request.protocol}#{request.host}#{request.request_uri}"

If you replaced request.host with request.host_with_port you'd get the equivalent of request.url

actually i need to type the whole thing projectbidding.com:12002 for
the server to come up is there any way where i can get the server up
just by typing projectbidding.com and on more question what exactly
this 12002 mean, is it a port on which my rails application running?

Yes, that is the port. You'd need to specify that mongrel or thin or
whatever listens on port 80 or, if Apache is listening on port 80,
proxies the requests through to that port (or, more likely, using a
proxy balancer to hit a small number of instances of your rails
application on consecutive ports).
