Well, as I stated in my previous post, I enabled Passenger for my Austin Real Estate site. Well, everything seemed fine for the first few days. But then I noticed that my memory usage was steadily creeping up. I killed my ruby processes and that helped but then it just started creeping up again. After working with Dreamhost, they discovered there was a bug in that version of Passenger and they upgraded it for me and now my memory usage is much lower and holding steady. However, I have another problem. Apparently Passenger disables mod_rewrite. This is fine since Passenger doeesn’t need it to run your Rails app. However, I also had a wordpress instance on my domain. I used a mod_rewrite to redirect users to the blog instead of Rails trying to interpret the url. This no longer works and now my blog is dead. I have several options to fix this. After much deliberating, I have decided to move my Rails app to a subdomain, search.braxtonbeyer.com. I will keep the blog on the main domain as it has most of the content. So, all in all, I am still satisfied with Passenger, but it does pay to do a little research before making major changes to your site.
