Is it possible to host RoR on Plesk without letting users require an ssh account?

    I was hoping that with Ruby_lsapi and the ability to utilise the .ls_rails_config file for routing that users would not require ssh access.
    (They could use ftp to upload their scripts and then by touching the .ls_rails_config file, get their controllers to reload).

    Has anyone done this?

    It should work.

    Brilliant!

    Any pointers for a sysadmin who knows nothing at all about Ruby?

    I have compiled Ruby-lsapi via gems.
    It appears that I can not get domains configured in the apache httpd.hosts to be handled by litespeed. (vhosts defined in litespeed work however the app mappings (as defined in the .ls_ruby_config file) do not.
    How do I set up handlers to point to ruby-lsapi?

    It should work with vhosts defined in Apache configuration just fine.
