In the readme for Backgroundrb it says that windows support has been
depcreated for this version, but then it goes on to mention how to use
it in Windows. So I'm not sure if it should be running on windows or
not, so I'll ask anyway. Also, I'm new to ruby and I'm also new to
server administration, so I apologize if my questions are pretty simple.
I've tried to install backgroundrb on windows by doing the following:
Installed slave 1.0.0 by using 'gem install slave' which seemed to work
Installed daemons 1.0.3. by using 'gem install daemons' which also
seemed to work
I downloaded backgroundrb via SVN into the vendor/plugin/backgroundrb
Did a 'rake backgroundrb:setup'
When I try to view a page it only renders "<h2>Application
error</h2>Rails application failed to start properly".
These are the errors that I got from Apache 2.2
Premature end of script headers: dispatch.cgi
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/pathname.rb:341:in `lstat': Invalid argument -
\tfrom C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/pathname.rb:341:in `realpath'\r
Any help would be appreciated
