I have been following a few Ruby on Rails tutorials developing some
simple apps with inspiring levels of success. The reason is that I
have a large project which I would consider using RoR for (previously
I have developed using PHP + Codeigniter as a framework). The speed of
development with RoR is fantastic.
However - massive snag! My hosting company, 1&1, does not support
development with the RoR framework. Thier message to me was:
‘At the moment we support the regular Ruby framework but not the Ruby
My question is this:
Can I use Ruby on Rails as a local development framework and then
deploy the product of that work to my hosting server which supports
only Ruby? In other words does the output from an RoR development
require RoR on the production server?
If the answer is yes - RoR is required on the production server - then
I will either abandon RoR as a dev framework or find a new hosting
With thanks for any direction.
Best wishes to all.
