What brought all this on is that Instant Rails looks a lot like another
“one-click web platform” package I have on my Windows system. It’s based
on EasyPHP and implements the Moodle course management system

Obviously, the application maintenance will be different, but I’d like
to be able to standardize the platform components – Ruby and PHP
interpreters, web servers and databases.
There’s a reason it looks like EasyPHP – Instant Rails 1.x is a fork of
EasyPHP! However, that is temporary as Instant Rails 2 will be based on
All-in-one packages like Instant Rails, Locomotive, and EasyPHP are
fantastic time savers if they meet you needs. They are not designed to
“user upgradable”. If that is what you need, then you should really do
own custom installation of the individual components.
