 Ruby on Rails with Lighttpd and MySQL

This is all interesting software that I have been doing some work on. My installation is on Centos, so its pretty close.

"I chose Lighttpd as it natively supports two core features that rails requires out of a web server - Fastcgi and URL rewriting. FastCGI is removes a lot of the limitations of CGI programs. CGI programs have the problem that they have to be restarted by the webserver for every request which leads to really bad performance values. FastCGI removes this limitation by keeping the process running and handling the requests by this always running process."
