To set up Decko behind an Apache webserver, we recommend using Phusion Passenger. In general, you will follow the instructions for deploying a Rack-based Ruby application.
Following the above example, your apache config might look something like this:
<VirtualHost *:80> ... DocumentRoot /srv/mydeck/current/public <Directory /srv/mydeck/current/public> AllowOverride all Options -MultiViews </Directory> </VirtualHost>
You will also need to make sure that the apache user (usually www-data) has read access to config.ru and read/write access to your log, tmp, and file directories
The above should help you get Decko working, but you'll have to do a bit more to make it fast.
- memcache. This is vital for a high-performing deck.
To configure Decko for memcache, add this to your Gemfile:
gem 'dalli'and edit config/application.rb with the following:
config.cache_store = :dalli_store, 
- mod_xsendfile. File and Image cards process permissions before sending the file. This makes that fast.
- You'll need to enable mod_headers so that the ht_access will work (Headers directives)
