I'm completely new in Rails and I'm facing this problem:
My application runs fine on my development machine when I use script/server (called webrick I guess)
The problem is when I put the application online with mod_rails. It takes forever to start after being idle for a while and in general it feels slower.
I was told to do this on my apache file:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName server.com DocumentRoot /var/www/server.com/public PassengerPoolIdleTime 99999 </VirtualHost>
The problem is I don't find this very elegant and if I don't use my app after a while it does the bootup thing again.
