In my quest to find the best rails configuration, I decided to try a new alternative to Apache+FastCGI/Apache+FCGID/Lighttpd+FastCGI.
Everyone seems to be focused on Mongrel combined with Apache 2.2 + mod_proxy_balancer. It looks good but Apache 2.2 isn’t actually in Debian (not even in unstable), and as I choose to switch this blog from a Fedora Core 2 (ooch !) server to another server of mine powered by Debian, it really doesn’t fits my needs.
So I choosed to try a different approach and use Apache 2.0.x + mod_proxy + Mongrel. This solution, gives me the possibility to use mongrel_cluster for process management, even if actually I don’t have multiple mongrel instances, and add a load balancer (Pen/Balance/Pound) if needed.
This setup seems to be sufficient for this blog, which runs the latest Typo (3.99.3).
Let me know if you see any differences with the previous configuration.
