mod_rails (Phusion Passenger™) FOR RUBY ON RAILS

mod_rails, also known as Phusion Passenger™, is a module for the Apache web server that makes it extremely easy to deploy Ruby on Rails applications. mod_rails is fast, memory efficient, and requires no server specific configuration. mod_rails is the closest thing to a "plug and play" environment for Ruby on Rails applications available today. It provides a simpler, and higher performance, run time environment than FastCGI and Mongrel configurations. Some key features of mod_rails are as follows:

  • rapid deployment - simply upload your files, no ROR specific server configuration is needed
  • zero maintenance - designed to run without headaches. Mod_rails cleans up after itself and recovers from errors wherever possible
  • efficient and reliable - minimizes resource consumption and never crashes the Apache web server
  • excellent documentation- complete documentation is available for administrators and developers


Ruby is an object-oriented programming language that was developed in the 1990s by Yukihiro Matsumoto. Ruby gained popularity in Japan, but world wide adoption was slow until English language documentation became available. In 2004, David Heinemeier Hansson created a web application framework for Ruby called Ruby on Rails. The framework was designed to allow for the rapid development of web applications. Ruby on Rails (ROR) follows the Model-View-Controlpattern for database use and also supports Ajax for the development of a rich interactive web interface. Ruby on Rails has been extremely well received throughout the entire world due to its power, ease of use, and value as a tool for rapid application development. Ruby on Rails is now developed and supported by
