I'm trying to deploy my first rails application and find that it is EXTREAMLY slow to load. Now I know I'm not the most efficient programmer but 20-30 seconds per page is a little beyond something even I could mess up.
I have FastCgi turned on from the cpanel. and I have .fcgi in all the correct places in my .htaccess file. But I'm still confused as to how this all works.
How does the dispatch.fcgi script get run? Do I need to start it somehow? How can I check to see if it's running or how much memory its taking up?
After following the instructions in the wiki I thought I would have a slick new web app however nothing could be further from the truth.
