This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

\script/server -e production -p 3000\ runs redmine using the provided webrick webserver, which is why that works. If you want to use apache to serve your redmine, you need to do additional configuration (see the answers). – ire_and_curses Aug 21 '09 at 10:39

Do you have Phusion Passenger installed? That's the easiest way to start serving a Rails application with Apache. It's quick to install and you shouldn't need to modify your virtual host configuration.

Alternatively, you can configure Apache to load balance with a cluster of Mongrels. This route requires more configuration.
