Ruby on rails, finally doing it
i've been following this introductory guide for ruby on rails
ive been going along nicely i feel like i know what im doing,
I'm just curious about how i can have it integrate with my apache server (which is currently hooked for doing php development)
id like to not have to run 2 servers as it seems kind of funny.
the only issue i could see is ive been following the guide and putting my stuff inside c:\rails
all of my php stuff is inside c:\www
and c:\www is my web root directory, i guess i need to create a different port on apache that goes to the directory root that the ruby on rails webserver is going to (which im not very sure where it goes actually)
i dont know if this is more of an apache question or what
i nosed around and found this
the tone of that paragraph is that it wont run too cool on apache and i should use lighthttpd.
will fastcgi help too much?
the final server if i do develope a pretty cool ruby thing will be on a 256 megabyte VPS.
any recomendations as far as that?

FastCGI with Apache works fine if you want to use Apache. I am on dreamhost currently and it runs well. I've never setup FCGI w/ Apache though so I can't help you there, sorry.
I just wanted to assure you fcgi with apache is fine.
