I just installed Redmine in slackware 13.1 I followed the instructions and test of the installation works fine using webrick:

ruby script/server webrick -e production

However, I now want to use it with apache in my local computer (localhost) but no idea how to configure apache for this.

The document root of apache is /var/www/htdocs. So I created a symbolic link to where redmine is (its owned by apache:apache) just to access it by http://localhost/redmine. Now if I access http://localhost/redmine I see the directories but how to run redmine cgi?

Can anyone give me some guidance?

In my experience, I have used Phusion Passenger to work Redmine in with Apache. Phusion Passenger is the same thing as mod_rails.
