Collaborating with IBM this is an interesting workload, but not a high priority atm.

Work needed to enable this workload on Power8 LE:
- port and build ppc64el binaries for apache2-pasenger
- port the precise version of this charm to trusty
- propose the trusty version of the charm for recommeded status.

If there are any folks interested in enabling this charm for Power8 LE please comment here so we can collaborate on a charm.

Hi, This is Bala from IBM. I am working on porting this charm to Power8 LE trusy version.

I could get the install hook working after compiling the passenger following instructions on https://github.com/phusion/passenger.
I have attached the hook file with this comment.

I am trying to test the charm by following the instruction in README.md, i.e. "juju deploy rack --config myapp.yml".

But I am not able to get "rack" charm.

Can you please help me with this.
