Switching to mongrel in rails 3

Dead easy with a few hiccups if you’re using newer ruby versions. First install the mongrel gem;

> gem install mongrel --pre

The problem I had (and later overcame) was in not adding in the --pre option into the install – turns out the current stable doesn’t play very well with newer ruby versions. This is likely to be fixed at some point, but this’ll get you through today šŸ™‚

After that, just add the following to your Gemfile;

gem 'mongrel'

then just bundle install and rails will use mongrel as the default web server.
