Yes, Mongrel is a good solution to autostarting your Rails app, and if you
just want to serve up the app with MOngrel, then that's all you need to do.

But if Didier wants to run through Apache, he still has the problem
ofApaching failing to start. Look at your apache log files and see if there
is anything in there that would tell you why its failing.
