How do I install RoR?

I want to create a website similar to craigslist but I am having
trouble installing ROR. I have no idea how and seek help. Do I have to
upload Ruby, RubyGem, and then the Rails onto my server, then install
it ?

TIA

Yes.

Longer answer: you should probably start by installing all of the
above locally first for learning purposes. :slight_smile:

Good luck.

  1. Go buy a Rails book, preferably a good one.
  2. Read it.
  3. Try again.
  4. Post error messages.

Quit expecting the list to babysit you.

So you have Ruby and RubyGems installed, and you’ve done a
gem install rails, correct?

Then you should be able to type rails projectname and rails will
build a directory with the basics for your app. But there are certainly
plenty of “getting started” tutorials, screencasts, etc. around.

HTH,

Go buy Head First Rails by David Griffiths. I any newbie should start
with this book to get an understanding of ROR, and then download
Humble Little book of ruby.

This is what I started with.
