Existing postgres database

Quick simple question

I am walking through some rails tutorials and would like to test it
with our corporate database, I am not very familiar with the platform
but I am learning. Are there any guides,tutorials or advice I can get
or be given to me on connecting to the remote postgres database,the
most stable adapter and how to set it up in database.yml

Thanks guys

As for your question the postgres gem is a bit faster than ruby-pg I
believe. However installing it in Windows takes a mild amount of
effort.

Configuring database.yml is simple too. Your adapter will be postgresql
the
rest is pretty self-explanatory, username is the name of a database user
that can access that particular database and the password is that users
password in the DBMS.

Just so someone said it: don’t experiment against production databases.
Don’t even experiment against databases on the same server as production
databases. If you mess up and lock up a daemon tied into a production
system
or worse yet trash a live database, you’ll get into very big trouble
with
your DBA. If you’re the DBA, you shouldn’t even be considering it.
