Getting ready to deploy a rails project on Mac OS X Server (10.5 - Leopard).

Got a few questions for someone with Rails experience:

  • where should directory containing the project go? inside the website's root folder or out?
  • who should "own" that directory? www? root? something/someone else?
  • hope to continue serving static pages via Apache... would like rails app to be served by mydomain/xxx/railsapp. is there a standard name people us for 'xxx'?

not expecting too much traffic to begin with...just like to keep things as simple as possible.
