The Apache 2 module was successfully installed.

Please edit your Apache configuration file, and add these lines:

LoadModule passenger_module /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/passenger-3.0.7/ext/apache2/
PassengerRoot /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/passenger-3.0.7
PassengerRuby /usr/bin/ruby

After you restart Apache, you are ready to deploy any number of Ruby on Rails
applications on Apache, without any further Ruby on Rails-specific

Press ENTER to continue.

                                                                                      • -

Deploying a Ruby on Rails application: an example

Suppose you have a Rails application in /somewhere. Add a virtual host to your
Apache configuration file and set its DocumentRoot to /somewhere/public:

DocumentRoot /somewhere/public # <-- be sure to point to 'public'!

AllowOverride all # <-- relax Apache security settings
Options -MultiViews # <-- MultiViews must be turned off

And that's it! You may also want to check the Users Guide for security and
optimization tips, troubleshooting and other useful information:
