There are more ways to run Genghis than you can shake a stick at
If you installed Genghis as a Ruby gem, running Genghis standalone is easy:
Now that it's running, you can use
genghisapp --kill to stop it.
Windows users: Due to this bug Genghis always runs in foreground mode.
If you didn't go the gem route, you can still run
$ ruby genghis.rb
genghis.php can also be run as a PHP 5.4 CLI SAPI standalone server:
$ php -S localhost:8000 genghis.php
In your LAMP stack
genghis.php in a web-accessible directory on a LAMP server. Don't forget
.htaccess for pretty URLs!
With nginx and PHP-fpm (and friends)
You'll need some fancy config action, but it's fairly straightforward.
In an existing Rack app
For a super basic Rack config, use a
config.ru file like this:
require 'genghis' run Genghis::Server
If you want to load Genghis on a subpath, possibly alongside other apps, it's easy to do with Rack's
require 'genghis' run Rack::URLMap.new \ '/' => Your::App.new, '/genghis' => Genghis::Server.new
With Rails 3
You can even mount Genghis on a subpath in your existing Rails 3 app by adding
require 'genghis' to the top of your
routes file (or in an initializer) and then adding this to
mount Genghis::Server.new, :at => '/genghis'
You will need the PECL MongoDB driver.
The easiest way to install Genghis and all dependencies is via RubyGems:
$ gem install genghisapp
Or you could check out a local copy of the Git repo and install dependencies via Bundler:
$ gem install bundler $ bundle install
Check the Genghis wiki for additional configuration information.
