Absolute Newbie - Can I Begin?

Our sites are hosted at IX which supports Ruby 1.6 but claims no
support for Ruby on Rails. Before I invest time to learn this GREAT
technology, I want to know if there is a need for the webhost to
support Ruby on Rails or can I upload the libraries and use RonR?

Any insight is appreciated,
Jon

I’m highly biased, but think you’ll be much better off hosting
with a Rails knowledgeable hosting service.

Don’t bother wtih IX. Rails needs Ruby 1.8.2 or 1.8.4, and if they’re
not willing to support Rails apps then they don’t deserve your money.

Just my two cents :slight_smile:

Your host probably won’t like the long-running daemons needed for
acceptable Rails performance, even if you can get it running without
them.

Look elsewhere.
