My personal guess is that you did something setting up Apache and  
fastcgi, and it's not running at all.  The index page works because  
it's left in the cache from when you ran ./script/server -e  
production.  Try running 'rake sweep_cache'; that should make it a  
lot easier to see when things are working or not working.  Keep an  
eye on production.log--*EVERY* uncached hit on your Typo site should  
generate an entry on there.  If it doesn't, then Apache (or Lightttp,  
or whatever) isn't actually calling Rails.

Try looking at the Typo troubleshooting page (http:// 
typo.leetsoft.com/trac/wiki/TroubleShooting) and following some of  
the steps.  This should help identify were things are broken.
