Use a rackup (config.ru) file and bind to localhost port 8080:
thin -R config.ru -a 127.0.0.1 -p 8080 start
Store the server process ID, log to a file and daemonize:
thin -p 9292 -P tmp/pids/thin.pid -l logs/thin.log -d start
Thin is quite flexible in that many options can be specified at the command line (see
thin -h for more).
You can create a configuration file using
thin config -C config/thin.yml.
You can then use it with all commands, such as:
thin start -C config/thin.yml.
Here is an example config file:
--- user: www-data group: www-data pid: tmp/pids/thin.pid timeout: 30 wait: 30 log: log/thin.log max_conns: 1024 require:  environment: production max_persistent_conns: 512 servers: 1 threaded: true no-epoll: true daemonize: true socket: tmp/sockets/thin.sock chdir: /path/to/your/apps/root tag: a-name-to-show-up-in-ps aux
