I need to setup a dedicated server to host Redmine (an open source Ruby-on-Rails bug tracker).
What is the best web server to accomplish this?
- something else?
It must run on Windows (flavor is optional but 2008-x64 preferred).
Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It only takes a minute to sign up.Sign up to join this community
Mongrel is no longer active/supported. I couldn't get it to work on WS2008 with Ruby 1.9.3. Alternatives are puma and Thin. see also: http://www.redmine.org/boards/1/topics/31297
Pretty much any of them should be fine as long as you don't expect to encounter any sort of serious load. Go with whatever you're most comfortable with.
In this particular case I'd probably go with IIS simply because its built in, integrated with Windows well, and works well.
