How do I start the fastcgi process?

software development

#1

Hi,

I have a rails app installed with fastcgi but when I try it, my browser says it can’t load the page. I don’t see any process running when I do a “ps -A”. There used to be a some fcgi scripts running, if I remember well. How do I start those processes? I thought they should start automatically upon a request from a browser but it is obviously not the
case.

I never figured that out and when I first installed my app, it eventually started working somehow (the processes started) but it doesn’t anymore. What do I have to do to start my application???

BTW: my app hasn’t changed! It just didn’t restart after the last power outage.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can’t imagine I am the only one with that problem, I haven’t seen anything about it in the wiki.

Nope! Been there, done that. There is just nothing to "RE"start. The processes just don’t run in the first place.

The second link you post seems promising: somebody posted that he knew the solution and that he would post it at
http://www.rubynoob.com
but it is a broken link (I guess he didn’t have the solution after all if his app is down again :wink: )

Thanks anyways for the input. At least I realize I am not the only one with that problem.

It would be nice for the people with a solution to include it in the wiki.
