WEBrick and Mongrel die on linux unless run as root

Can the user that mongrel is running under access the log files? Read and
write?

Sounds permissions related to me.

Yes, the application starts up fine and writes a pid file and log files.
You can use it with no problems, but after a couple of hours or so, it
just goes away. You can restart it and get a couple more hours just fine
and then poof.

I suppose then you create a cron job that runs a script that restarts
mongrel process every hour or so - otherwise, get a system admin.

Thanks, looks like we'll do the latter. I appreciate all the help.
