Easiest way to deploy a ruby on rails site


#1

Hi,

i am looking to deploy a ruby on rails site. I currently have some
asp.net 2.0 sites hosted using IIS. I have looked at some of the issues
with hosting a rails site on IIS and this looks more hassle than what it
is worth. I tried it and i couldn’t get it to work.

Can someone tell me what is the easiest way to get a rubyonrails site up
and running on a server running windows.

If it is easier with a linux machine then i can create a virtual linux
website server but need to know whats the easiest solution.

Thanks

You could try InstantRails :

I’m looking for testers of my “vgrails” VMWare virtual Rails server. :slight_smile:

  1. Instant Rails carries its own copy of Ruby/Rails, MySQL and Apache.
    That would bypass IIS (and MS SQL Server).

  2. I am building a Linux Virtual Machine which will include Rails and
    will run under a Windows host with the new VMWare free server. I should
    have a working version up on the web in a day or two; the build takes
    forever but once it’s built, I can upload it. Bill of Materials:

a. Gentoo Linux 2006.0
b. Apache (1 and 2 both)
c. Lighttpd
d. PHP (4)
e. Perl and Python (which come with Gentoo)
f. MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and unixODBC
g. Rails
h. Subversion, CVS and Trac
i. RRDTool
j. R

This is a project on RubyForge – the name is “vgrails” (Virtual Gentoo
Rails). However, they don’t have the bandwidth to host a virtual
machine, so it will be on my web site with a link posted on RubyForge.

Watch this space. :slight_smile:
