walk in the park: installing mod_rails aka phusion passenger

man that was easy. after my problems with getting ruby, gem and rails to run installing mod_rails aka phusion passenger was really easy:

  • gem install passenger
  • passenger-install-apache2-module

i followed the steps that the installer told me and go. just needed to apt-get some apache dev packages and was ready to run. cant tell you how happy i am.now the rails fun can start.
