Newbie who want to add video and newsletter

Hi guys ! I’m french, sorry for my bad english !
I’m newbie with Rails but I want to work on an existant website created
with this.
I wish add a video, a newsletter, a auto-responder.
I downnloaded all files from the host to my local computer, in the www
directory
I imported the Mysql bdd in Phpmyadmin.
And now … I don’t want how I can work …
Where is the index file ?
Ah, I found the css !
I found many tutos on “how to work” but it’s always from a new install.
I didn’t found help to work on an existing website. I found a lot of
things
but what is the consol ?? How can I launch it ??
The website contains a frontend and a backend for the admin.
I don’t even know what is the version of Rails !
I need a little help to get a foot in the stirrup !
I know PHP, CMS like Wordpress, Joomla and I’m a little lost !
Thank a lot !!

I suggest you work through a good tutorial (railstutorial.org is good
and is free to use online). I know this will be for a new application
but that will be the best way to learn the basics of rails. Having
done that then you will be able to understand what you have.

Also look at the Rails Guides online.

To find which version of rails the application expects then first look
in the file config/environment.rb where you may find a line
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = …
If you do not see that file then there may be a file Gemfile in the
root of the project, in which case it should have a line gem ‘rails’,
‘some version’
