How do I configure ruby to mysql by default instead of sqlit

Hello,

I am running Mac OS X 10.6.4 and have installed the following:

ruby-1.9.1-p429
RubyGems 1.3.7
Rails 2.3.8

I am now getting an error because sqlite3 is not installed and I’ve read
that there are issues installing ruby-sqlite3! SO I’m not sure if I
should (or how to) install sqlite3.

A developer suggested I use sqlite3 for testing and mysql for
production, but wouldn’t that mean having to convert my sqlite database
to mysql for production? I might just as well always use mysql, no?

Which leads me to the following question: how do I configure rails to
always default to using mysql database instead of sqlite3?

Thank you for your help.

Best regards,

Olivier

Where are you reading that? installing sqlite3 is as simple as “gem
install sqlite3-ruby”

Please report any issue to SQLite3-Ruby Issue tracker and group:

If you use ActiveRecord and no SQL directly, no. The idea of using a
ORM is to abstract you from the database engine running in the
background.

config/database.yml

In the future, more questions Rails-specifics are better asked to a
Rails group:
