So I did get my beta site more or less working last night. However there are still a few issues I need to iron out, before I invite the first early beta testers in.
There seem to be som differences in the way the application (which is written in Ruby on Rails) works in development and production mode. Otherwise the issues are related to the differences in Webrick and fastcgi deployment. Needs investigating in tonights session.
My wife/CFO has promised a restaurant trip tomorrow if and only if it is up and running by then, so I better figure it out by then ;-).
