Having trouble getting going with Nitro. Since nitrohq is still out I
have no doc resources so hopefully someone "out there" can lend a

First of all, I like to manage me websites like I manage my other
applications. I work on it in a dev directory and when I'm ready to
deploy I run a script which copies the needed files to the proper
install location.

So, I'm using Apache2 w/ fastcgi. I have George's basic nitrogen
layout to start with.  I thought I'd just have to copy the the public/
dir to my web servers document root. But I'm just looking at raw xhtml
pages --no Nitro goodness :-(

If I run the run.rb script it does work, but via webrick. How do I get
it to work via apache?


Here's my Apcahe2 config. Note the Rewrite rules are not working at all either.
