We’ve been encouraging our Rails hosting customers to give Pound and Mongrel a try for deploying their Ruby on Rails applications. David Gibbons has been adding some recipes for doing this on the PLANET ARGON Documentation Project

    How many ports per user are allowed for mongrel setups? I’d love to use Apache or Lighttpd to proxy to Mongrel instances for my Rails apps instead of FCGI, obviously port numbers are the limiting factor in that setup.

    We generally encourage users to start with three ports on our standard shared hosting plans.

    For our Rails business hosting plans, we’re a bit more forgiving… ;-)
