I decided to write some blog entries on my pet project for running Ruby
1.9.2 and Ruby on Rails 3.0.5 on Windows Server 2008 EE. I figured I
might as well post while I create, and if anyone wants to stop by and
see how it works out, you are more than welcome to do so.
I’m primarily concentrating on Windows Server 2008 EE with Active
Directory and LDAP functionality with Ruby on Rails “without” IIS.
Given that there’s not a great many topics out there for Windows 2008
server and RoR, especially without IIS and fast-cgi, I thought I would
help others that come down the road and need to dwell into a windows
The basic setup is:
Windows 2008 Server EE
Ruby on Rails 3.0.5
devise_ldap_authenticatable (for ldap)
I’ll be working on the next few parts over this week. I will cover
everything from LDAP communication to even creating a built in service
for your rails app with the server.
