Rails app working after a reload

software development


Hello All,
I deployed a very simple rails app using the VPS at:


I had a lot of problems to deploy it, at the end I downgraded to ruby 1.8.7 to get the app (almost) working. The remaining problem is that the first time I visit the app (after a period of inactivity) I get an error from Passenger about rack. After a reload of the page (that lasts a few seconds) the app is working correctly. With a “ps -ef” command I noticed that a rack process is started after the reload. Someone know how do I avoid the process is stopped due to inactivity?

Someone who tried to set up RVM with a separated rails stack as described in this wiki page:


can tell me something about memory consumption compared to the default rails stack ?

Thanks, Antonio
