Can Apache serve a Ruby "branch" in the site nav for our internal PHP site??
We have a site in our network (Windows peer-to-peer) for some common tools, utilities, etc.
It is hosted on a WAMP stack on a a computer named "Server".
To reach the current site, users simply type "server" into their browsers, and they have everything that they need.
Now there's been a request for a task manager (Tracks), so we need to make an addition to our site.
Tracks is a RoR project, so I'm a bit out of my element (even moreso than usual ).
I've located many tutes and articles about installing a separate ruby stack, and even some about forwarding a specific domain to a Ruby project with Apache via VHosts ... but what about integrating it into the existing site.
Let's say our internal site has nav items for; Home, Reports, Schedules, etc .
We want to add a Tasks item right into that nav menu, and have it load the Tracks pages.
Naturally, users should be able to nav back too.
How do we do this?
(Or is there a better way than our little convoluted attempt here ??)
~ Mo...because it's dundant already.

Ideally you would use a separate domain("tracks" instead of "server"), or a subdomain("tracks.server", etc.) to make it easy to use a vhost with mod_proxy.
