Definitely, the SCGI server has some problem that is causing it to crash or
not start up in the first place. Two things to try...

First, check the scgi.log file to see if there's any useful info in there.
You'll find it at:


Second, as you suggested, you can start the SCGI server manually by:

1) Opening a Ruby command window using "Rails Applications >> Open Ruby
Console Window"

2) Move into the typo subdirectory: "cd typo-2.6.0"

3) Run the command "ruby ..\..\ruby\bin\scgi_service"
