I wrote up a little tale about my success getting Rails, MySQL and
Mongrel working on a development box for my blog.
I realize that a lot of folks here are past this already, but once I
feel a problem is solved, I normally like to leave a little trail for
myself. My walkthrough doesn’t add that much flesh to the wiki
entry, but it was tougher than I thought to get Apache and friends
Hope some of you find this helpful! I’ve really enjoyed this
environment for working on Rails.
