I'm trying to find a mod_ruby for lighttpd, not apache2. Does anyone have any ideas?

For performance i suggest you running with nginx and ruby enterprise.

With lighttpd you are left with FastCGI or mongrels .

I'm not trying to build a rails app, just needed a ruby interpreter on a webserver. – chutsu Aug 17 '09 at 18:26

Ruby is used through FastCGI with LigHTTPd.

For building on OSX Tiger: this guide From the ArchLinux wiki: this wiki

Personally, I have found many build-on-osx guides to be minimally adapted to work on other *nixes.

its not a very good page for describing how to configure fastcgi... – chutsu Aug 17 '09 at 18:28
What is your OS? Please look for a tutorial or guide specific to your OS. – mpbloch Aug 19 '09 at 15:53
Added two links which look to be more readable than the last one. – mpbloch Aug 19 '09 at 15:57
