How to use MySQL instead of sqlite3

The current release of Ruby on Rails uses sqlite3 as its default
database.

How can I set Ruby on Rails to use MySQL? I tried

gem install mysql

but new projects still default to using sqlite3.

Thanks.

For existing projects you should chage database.yml, for new projects
you can use rails -d mysql project_name

  1. Rails questions are better asked the Rails community:
    rubyonrails.com/community

  2. rails -d mysql, IIRC.
