Ruby + Apache/Debian doesn't wanna work

maybe test with a simple dispatch.fcgi one that just prints hello?
Looks like it's an apache error mostly (?)
check your logs, rails logs, error logs.

Well, it all works with Webrick so I guess dispatch files are alright?

Anyone has a clue why this is happening?

maybe create a public/index.html ?
make sure it works with just normal requests...checkout various
instructions on how to set it up...

lookup on google how to replace public/index.html (you set up a route
for it).

Sorry but I don' really get what you mean by saying replace
public/index.html. I normally delete it and that's it. Could you please
explain what you mean by replacing index.html and setting up a route?

Thanks a lot.

sorry. what I meant was google search for
rails replace public/index.html
GL!

Well, I tried the first 5 page results from Google and I'm not a bit
smarter how to solve that problem. I might be too stupid or just don't
get your point but thanks anyway :wink:

Thanks for doing that.
What you need to do is delete that file and set up a 'route' for ''
a la
map.connect '', :controller => 'site', :action => 'index'
(from the second link).
GL!

Aaaah! OK, that's what you're talking about!

Like I said it's all works when I use WEBrick so the project itself is
100% working. So the routes and everything are set prooperly.

WEBrick: Project works just fine.
Apache: 500 Error.

does it not throw 500 when there is a public.html? what about if you do
an action/view? does webrick work when you load '/'?

most of my 500's from this type of thing are when a directory or file
aren't chmod ag-w * (I think).

Thank you so much!

I did that chmod ag-w thing and changed the owner from the ftp-user (who
uploaded it) to www-data and no it works all fine.

Thanks man!
