I'm not very technical...but certainly getting that way fast...so you can count on me being able to help out more in this forum as well as the ones I currently participate.

I don't know much about apache mods...other than it requires a re-compile of the server..which Server CP has told me it needs fastcgi mod...which is all well and good.
It occurs to me that maybe this isn't something you really want to do very often...and...perhaps...there are other mods I need to add to the mix at the same time.

Are there any mods that would make ruby/rubygems/rubyon rails better? Faster? Safer? etc.

Also...in general are there others that do different things...that are good?
