Introduction ------------- WebROaR is an application server that makes deployments of ruby web applications extremely simple. It provides an integrated solution to view the run time performance numbers and email notifications in case any exceptions occur in any of the deployed applications. It is 5 to 55% faster than all other comparable deployment stacks for Ruby on Rails applications. Check out http://webroar.in and doc/user-guide.html for more details. Key Features ~~~~~~~~~~~~ * Maximum Performance. * Simplified Deployment. * Runs Ruby on Rails(TM) as well as other Rack compliant applications. * Run Multiple Applications Simultaneously. * Implements HTTP/1.1 grammar as per RFC 2616 including support for persistent, and chunked requests. * Intelligent load balancing and dynamic reaping of stuck ruby processing instances. * Provides run time performance data for the deployed applications. * Generates notifications in case any exceptions occur in any of the deployed applications. * Zero Downtime Application Upgrades. * Static assets encoding. * SSL support. Supported Operating Systems --------------------------- WebROaR has been tested on Ubuntu 8.10/9.04/9.10/10.04, Debian 5 (64 Bit), Mac OS X (v10.5 & v10.6), Arch Linux 2009.08 and Cent OS 5.2. Basically, it should be able to run on any *IX OS. Currently it does not support Microsoft(R) Windows. Install -------- Prerequisites ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ - ruby 1.8.x or 1.9.x - ruby 1.8-dev or 1.9-dev - openssl ruby extension (On Ubuntu/Debian it is available as libopenssl-ruby1.X) - zlib ruby extension - rubygems - C build tools (gcc etc) (e.g. build-essential on Ubuntu, Xcode on MacOS) - libsqlite3 - libsqlite3-dev - gnutls 2.4.1 or later (Only necessary in case SSL support is required) - gnutls-dev 2.4.1 or later (Only necessary in case SSL support is required) Procedure ~~~~~~~~~ WebROaR can installed using the following commands: ---- sudo gem install webroar sudo webroar install ---- [NOTE] .SSL Support =============================== In case you would like to setup SSL support for the server, use the following command line switch with *sudo webroar install* command mentioned above. ---- sudo webroar install --ssl-support ---- Configure further SSL options in the server's admin panel *http://<yourservername>:<port>/admin-panel/configuration* After restarting the server, admin panel would now also be accessible over SSL. *https://<yourservername>:<port>/admin-panel* =============================== Or if you like living in the fast lane, you can install the edge version giving the following commands: ---- git clone git://github.com/webroar/webroar.git cd webroar sudo rake install ---- [NOTE] .SSL Support =============================== To build with SSL support, use the following additional switch with the *sudo rake install* command: ---- sudo rake install ssl=yes ---- Configure further SSL options in the server's admin panel *http://<yourservername>:<port>/admin-panel/configuration* After restarting the server, admin panel would now also be accessible over SSL. *https://<yourservername>:<port>/admin-panel* =============================== Known Issue ----------- WebROaR with SSL build crashes on Ubuntu 10.04 upon execution of 'gnutls_handshake' by secure connection.
