Ruby Rails Passenger Apache Welcome Aboard 500 internal server error

view story

http://serverfault.com – I've just setup ruby/rails on a centos 6 with passenger and apache. I've got the default 'welcome aboard' page to load but when I click on "About your application’s environment" it shows a 500 internal server error. My database is mysql, I have all the necessary packages installed including the mysql gem. However, everything works as intended in the webbrick server. I can post links to both the apache version with the error and the working webbrick version if anyone cares to see. Any idea what the issue is? My virtual host file: <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName simpleurl.co # (HowTos)
