Simple Ruby FCGI

The following minimal config will proxy to a ruby application server such as unicorn or thin via a socket.

Some values below are specific to Arch Linux such as the http user and the /srv/http directory, so replace as appropriate for your distribution or project.

user http;
worker_processes  3;

events {
    worker_connections  1024;

http {
    include            mime.types;
    default_type       application/octet-stream;
    sendfile           on;
    tcp_nopush         on;
    keepalive_timeout  65;
    gzip               on;
    gzip_types         text/plain text/css text/javascript
                       application/javascript application/json
    index              index.html index.htm;

    server {
        listen       80;
        root         /srv/http/my_app/public;
