Switching to Typo

I am switching the blog to Typo, blog software written in Ruby, using the Rails framework.

The hard part is getting the software to run fast and run where I want it http://znark.com/blog/. FastCGI and Apache don’t seem to work with my hosting company. So I could run it through CGI which means the each page loads slowly as it compiles tons of Ruby libraries.

A popular solution at TextDrive is to run a personal Lighttpd web server process on an assigned port. Then, Apache can proxy to lighttpd so nobody has to remember to go to http://blog.znark.com:8090/.

However, I haven’t figured out how to get typo to go in a subdirectory while running under a subdirectory. Lighttpd doesn’t yet have all the rewrite functionality needed. Until I get this figured out, the blog may be broken or not have any style.
