Subversion access works with Webrick, but not with the passenger plugin ("Rails application failed to start properly")

Added by Eric Schmidt over 13 years ago

I'm running redmine on an ubuntu 8.04 vserver.
At the beginning i was using Redmine with webrick, after i managed some issues i got everything working. I have an SSL-secured subversion repository that i use for my redmine project.

Some days before i switched from webrick to passenger. Everything works fine except that i can't access my Subversion Repository with Redmine anymore. There is always the error

Application error
Rails application failed to start properly

My Apache error_log says:

[Sat Apr 11 22:20:11 2009] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers: projects, referer:
[Sat Apr 11 22:20:18 2009] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers: projects, referer:

When i start Redmine with Webrick, it still works and i can access my Repository.

I checked out the files from my repository from the console as www-data User, in case there is an accept-ssh-key-issue that doesn't show up (i had to do that with webrick and my "redmine" user). But that didn't solve the problem.

Any idea how i can solve this issue? What differences are there between webrick and passenger when accessing a (ssl-secured)subversion-repository?
thanks very much in advance for your answers!
