script/process/spawner silently failing

Hi all,

I set up a standard Capistrano deployment on a new host.
To start the Mongrels, "script/spin" calls "script/process/spawner
It prints a few lines as if everything were normal, however the
mongrels are not started and it doesn't create any files in log or tmp
that would give me a clue on what happened.
If I start Mongrel via script/server -e production everything works as
Any hints on where to find debugging output?
BTW I'm running 2.1.2.



Hello all,

I'm having this exact problem (albeit with rails 2.0.2--I can't
upgrade this particular app without breaking things there's no money
to fix). Any ideas?

I hope this doesn't double-post.

I have this issue as well. Any ideas?

I figured out what the problem was in my case.
It turned out that the mongrel gem hadn't installed the mongrel_rails
executable for some reason.
