Rails and fcgi

software development


hey everyone.
Here’s the thing: my rails application worked fine but incredibly slow so I wanted to switch to fcgi (cgi is default from what I understand). According to some posts I changed the line in my .htaccess file from
RewriteRule ^(.)$ dispatch.cgi [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^(.
)$ dispatch.fcgi [QSA,L]
and now all I get is 500s.
Anyone familiar with this ?
Is there something else I need to do in order to switch to fcgi ?

Thanks alot !
