    I am trying to setup a web site using Ruby/Sinatra. Normally I would the command `ruby helloworld.rb' to start the web server from Ruby, so I'd imagine IIS should use the same command, right? In the examples, from http://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/httpplatformhandler/httpplatformhandler-configuration-reference, the only extra parameter seems to be the port HTTP_PLATFORM_PORT, which I added as well.
    However IIS ends in timeout without loading anything. What am I missing?

    This is my (simple) web.config: 

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <add name="httpplatformhandler" path="*" verb="*" modules="httpPlatformHandler" resourceType="Unspecified" requireAccess="Script" />
    <httpPlatform stdoutLogEnabled="true"
    arguments="D:\web\nosside\helloworld.rb -p %HTTP_PLATFORM_PORT%">

    Hi Lex, 

    I've consulted that page, but I still don't understand what I am missing.  It seems he describes an additional part only related to rails, apparently because in his case the site isn't in the top folder. I can see from ProcessExplorer that ruby is invoked as:

    c:\dev\ruby\bin\ruby.exe D:\web\nosside\helloworld.rb -p 10666

    which, according to my understanding, is all that is expected, i.e. the way to invoke the ruby server + passing the port to listen. Moreover I am able to connect and see the web application if directly going with the browser to localhost:10666.

    Is there any additional permission to the root folder that needs to be set for IIS ?
