Hi,
I am Sheru & am completely new for this web framework. I am really
really enthusiastic to know the Ruby on Rails & possibly try to use
this framework near future.

But at the start up, I don't have idea on installing RoR on Windows
XP.

1. What is the sequential intalling components of RoR?
2. How easily could I get the RoR website hosting server?

Hope that I will get response.

Thank you all.

Try: http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/getting-started/instal...

Not hard, if you're deploying to a Unix server. If you install Apache
and Phusion Passenger (an Apache module for deploying Rails app) then
it's pretty much upload-and-go. The process is described in the
Phusion Passenger users guide.

Deploying to a Windows server a bit harder and generally not
recommended. Developing on Windows is fine.

Sheru,

Forget about Win, go for Linux over a virtual machine, for example
Ubuntu running on Sun xVM VirtualBox. It's way easier, faster, better!

Cheers, Sazima

Hi Robert,
Thank you for your response. As I am searching good php framework, so
went to ruby on rails hoping this could be one option.
But still I am new for this. Hope, I will be rightly directed.

I use windows on my pc, what should be installed to run the ruby on
rails on windows pc for development purpose? and for linux too?

Thank you.
Sheru

Hi,
I have installed ruby186-27_rc2 on windows xp for the developement.

Now I have questions:

- How do I know now the ruby installed successfully & where do I write
coding?

- Does package install rubygems automatically or need to do manually?

Thank you for your suggestion

Open a command window and at the prompt type:

ruby -v

and hit Enter/Return.  If ruby installed correctly, that command should
output the version(-v) that was installed.

You write your code in a text file and then you name the file with a .rb
extension, for example:

myfirstprogram.rb

To make ruby execute your program, you open a command window and cd
(change directory) to the directory that contains your program.  Then at
the prompt you type:

ruby myfirstprogram.rb

You can check that by opening up a command window and typing:

gem -v

Hi Sheru ,

Install all of these in the same order :

1. Ruby (http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/)
2. Install Ruby Gems from (http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=126)
3. Download the gem "Rails" from  rubyforge.org and install with the
command       "gem install rails --include-dependencies"
4. Some times this doesn't completely install the rails framework for
which you   will have to install the following gems in the same order.


 rake

 activesupport

 activerecord

 actionpack

 actionmailer

 actionwebservice

 Now go to "http://localhost:3000" , it should show you the rails home
page or else you have failed in your installation.

 After installing successfully,u can go ahead with any ROR tutorials .
 Try this link http://www.tutorialspoint.com/ruby-on-rails/index.htm for
some good tutorials.

Enjoy

It may be a bit late for you now, but I would suggest installing
InstantRails, which is trivial to do and gives you a complete self
contained
working environment.
It does not include the latest version of rails yet so after installing
and
checking that it is working ok open a Ruby Console Window (click on the
I
next to the Apache button, select Rails Applications, Open ruby console
window) and update rubygems by
gem update --system
and update rails by
gem install rails

and off you go.
