I am a Software Engineer tasked with installing Redmine on our server. Currently it's running using WebRick from /usr/share/redmine but I would like to:

  1. have it run in /srv/redmine (chroot if possible).
  2. use fastcgi.

I am not sure how to get it to run out of /srv/redmine so if anyone can help with that it would be greatly appreciated. I have seen configuring it with fastcgi and Apache or Lighttpd but is it possible to just get fastcgi working without a web server?

Please do not run Redmine or any production web app with Webrick. Webrick is a Ruby development server that is known it stop responding and leak memory if it's run for a long period of time. Running a single mongrel is a lot faster and more stable than Webrick – spacebiker Oct 3 '12 at 15:00
