Is there a known problem with dispatch.fcgi and Redmine 0.9?

Added by Frank Church over 10 years ago

I have tried using mod_fcgid with redmine on two different systems. One at dreamhost and the other on my personal system.

After going through all the errors the application returns a 500 error.

When I run ./dispatch.fcgi or ./dispatch.fcgi on the command line, the application simply hangs. It simply does not return, as though it is an endless loop or waiting for input indefinitely.

In both cases running ./dispatch.cgi always terminated until the point where it complained about fcgi and I run a gem install fcgi.

Webrick runs fine on both systems, so I suspect the problem is in the way the cgi aspect is handled.

using fcgi with rails has never been very reliable and recently it is downright non-standard.

If you are on a Linux system try and get Apache + passenger (aka mod_rails) up and running.

If you are on a windows system reverse proxy to a mongrel instance or two

I just installed redmine 0.9 on my dreamhost with passenger turned on and it was a 10 minute perfect installation using the dispatch.fcgi
