Trouble launching my RoR server on startup

Hi,

I created this script to launch my RoR server

==============begin script========================
#!/bin/bash

. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions

RETVAL=$?
EASYRXHOME="/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/easyrx"

case "$1" in
start)
        cd $EASYRXHOME/
        ruby script/server
        ;;
stop)
        kill -9 `ps aux | grep 'script/server' | awk '{print $2}'`
        ;;
*)
        echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop}"
        exit 1
        ;;
esac

exit $RETVAL
==============end script=========================

But when I try and run the script (when logged in as root), I get this
error,

[root@me dir]# cd /etc/init.d
[root@me init.d]# ./easyrxd start
./script/../config/boot.rb:9:in `require': no such file to load --
rubygems (LoadError)
        from ./script/../config/boot.rb:9
        from script/server:2:in `require'
        from script/server:2

Does anyone know what this error means? If I manually type in the
start command, RoR starts fine.

Thanks, - Dave

Hi,
Not a massive expert on bash, but i have deployed a good number of
rails applications now and I would recommend you get hold of mongrel /
mongrel_cluster gems and run a set of proxy server instances which
apache just forwards the requests to. You'll need Apache 2.2.x with
mod_proxy_balancer, or better, use nginx which is a lot lighter. There
are heaps of tutorials out there for setting up mongrel_cluster. The
first one i used was
http://blog.codahale.com/2006/06/19/time-for-a-grown-up-server-rails-mongrel-apache-capistrano-and-you/

It's a bit daunting at first, but it is worth it.The rails community
generally recommend this configuration. Mongrel cluster comes with the
init scripts you need for startup and management, and it prevents
thread-locking problems that occur serving lots of page requests due
to rails' single-threaded nature.

Best,
Joe

Err, how about looking at line 2 in boot.rb as it shows above?
