I’ve just installed Apache 2.2 and WordPress 2.3.3 after looking into some alternatives, mainly ruby-based solutions:

Alternative web servers:

  • lighttpd + fastcgi (old recommended solution)
  • apache + mod_ruby (“class sharing issue”)
  • nginx + mongrel (seems the de facto RoR solution)
  • SCGI?

Ruby-based weblogging systems:

  • typo (complex?)
  • mephysto (seems the most appropiate)
  • radiant (more a CMS than a blogging system)

The decision was made because I’m really new in Ruby and RoR and I would like to start taking notes about my progress in this area
