FastCGI problem


I’m trying to install Typo 2.5.2, the latest version of the Rails powered weblog engine, all is fine with “./script -e production -p 9696”, but when I’m trying to access the homepage, I just get the listing of my “public” directory that I set up in my subdomain details as explained here, instead of my my Typo default homepage …

I guess this is related to FastCGI, it doesn’t recognize dispatch.fcgi or something like that, but I don’t know how to set that up correctly.
Do I have to modify a .htaccess file ? Do I have to change dispatch.fcgi (I already copied the latest version created from DH server) ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Here’s some notes on my setup of typo:

I didn’t use the script you mention (9696) so can’t be much use there.

Great, I was on your blog at this moment :slight_smile:
I had not .htaccess file, now it contains :

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.fcgi [QSA,L] RewriteEngine On
BUT, as you’re here :wink: you could maybe help me with another error. I get a lot of routing errors. I saw your post about that but it didn’t help.

ActionController::RoutingError (Recognition failed for "/images/powered.gif"): /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-1.9.1/lib/action_controller/routing.rb:444:in `recognition_failed' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-1.9.1/lib/action_controller/routing.rb:434:in `recognize!' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-0.13.1/lib/dispatcher.rb:32:in `dispatch' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-0.13.1/lib/fcgi_handler.rb:144:in `process_request' also for /stylesheets/… and /javascript/…

My routes.rb file is the default from Typo 2.5.2 with

map.connect '/stylesheets/theme/:filename', :controller => 'theme', :action => 'stylesheets' map.connect '/javascript/theme/:filename', :controller => 'theme', :action => 'javascript' map.connect '/images/theme/:filename', :controller => 'theme', :action => 'images' What do I have to change ? Is it in routes.rb or in Typo’s code ?

Sorry I didn’t see this til now. Are you still having trouble? I see with the example that there isn’t a route that would serve powered.gif. The images route below is assuming all images are served from a ‘theme’ directory:

map.connect ‘/images/theme/:filename’

Your request should be ‘/images/azure/powered.gif’ (assuming you’re using that theme) OR you could add a route like the other but without the ‘theme’ part.

Is this a clean install of Typo? When I changed to the current version is when I first saw the themes directory. Could you have any old files around that wasn’t using that directory?
