For some reason hpricot and rails on Dreamhost are not playing nice together. My app worked fine in mongrel on my home sever… and works fine with script/server from Dreamhost (although I’ve since found this is against the TOS). However, my app does not get loaded up through dispatch.fcgi.
If I comment that line from my config/environment.rb all is good in the world again. So there’s some issue with apache/FCGI and hpricot.
I’ve found lots of descriptions of the problem and attempted fixes, none of which have worked for me. Any other ideas out there??
