    Howdy Tomdchi,

    I am not sure if you have seen the explanation I have made at the link below, though the reason we're not implementing this just yet is due to incompatibility with stable release of mongrel, as it doesn't work with Rails 3 and the last update has been many years. For more information on this, please see my reply to a similar request here:

    http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/why-does-ror-get-no-love-328941.html

    If you would like me to delve on anything Rails related, please feel free to PM me or reply to this thread.

    It was my understanding that you guys were going to get rid of mongrel in favor of passenger. If this is true then mongrel not working with Rails 3 doesn't matter. Leaving this hanging out there for years makes it incredibly hard for us to plan.

    I agree. Rails only added the recent security patch to version 2 because the threat was so severe. Their clear intent is that Rails 3 be the current rails platform (3.2 even!), and yet cPanel is forcing us to stick with version 2. It's so frustrating (and potentially unsafe)! Especially since the cPanel feature request for Passenger says it is planned, and we've been hearing about it being added to both 11.34 and 11.36, and yet still no progress or even info.

    What's the deal??

    Re: Still no Rail 3 support & Rails 4 is coming soon?

    Apparently Rails is a VERY LOW priority with cpanel. Been waiting on this forever.:mad:

    We read so many explanations, announcements and promises on this forum...

    2010.08.29 RoR 3.0 released

    2011.03.28 "we are already working on Passenger + Rails 3 support" http://forums.cpanel.net/f145/mod_r...3-support-case-44197-a-152577.html#post822392

    2011.05.05 "We are planning to have this improved RoR implementation (Passenger + Rails 3) be part of version 11.34" http://forums.cpanel.net/f145/mod_r...upport-case-44197-a-152577-p2.html#post854282

    2011.08.31 RoR 3.1 released

    2011.10.28 "News? At this rate rails 4 will be released before cPanel supports 3..." http://forums.cpanel.net/f145/mod_r...upport-case-44197-a-152577-p3.html#post990261

    2012.01.20 RoR 3.2 released

    2012.10.14 "Rails 3 support was not added into 11.34, since we were planning on adding mod_rails with the new rpm system to my knowledge. That system will be launched in 11.36 rather than in 11.34" http://forums.cpanel.net/f145/mod_r...pport-case-44197-a-152577-p4.html#post1245301

    2013.04.26 "11.36 and it seems it doesn't support Rail 3.x?" (no reply) http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/mongrel...s-3-0-case-43320-a-163993-p3.html#post1376791

    2013.06.25 RoR 4.0 released

    Today: cPanel development team is... waiting?


    Questions:

    1) Can you understand that NO ONE single RoR developer is using 2.x anymore? Supporting RoR 2.x is USELESS and seems more a trick than a SW feature.

    2) In Mongrel is the issue... why don't you drop mongrel? Did you know? The last mongrel stable version was released in 2008!


    At this speed rate, I guess, you will drop RoR support before rails 5 release..?

    Best regards

    On the following feature links below, we have put out an official message regarding Rails and I'm including them in here. I recommend following the two as once more information comes available, you will be notified via email:

    ruby app support through phusion passenger | cPanel Feature Requests
    Rails 3.x | cPanel Feature Requests

    I also recommend following the blog post mentioned above.
