Description Steve Yin 2013-07-09 02:39:44 UTC
I've found a overlay which have the nginx+passenger support, so I'm wondering why there is no official support on this?

I think there must be some users need to run passenger with nginx like me.

But current nginx-1.4.1 in portage don't have passenger support

Reproducible: Always

me too...  sorry, ive ran into this building the gitlab wiki with alternative endings.
Comment 2 Christian Bricart 2013-11-19 22:24:09 UTC
as a sidenote: the passenger module for nginx would be an additional third party module, and from my experience it very othen has compile (read: link) issues..

but the in-tree nginx already has USE="uwsgi" which allows both "unicorn" and "uwsgi-plugin-rack-ruby" to be proxied

I just looked into this. The build system is a custom thing in bin/ built in ruby which does all kinds of things. Someone from the ruby herd should probably look at this.

There's an overlay which supports it here:

Still keen on WONTFIX since I'd prefer someone co-maintaining for this scenario.
