I am brand new to Ruby and Ruby on Rails, and I already have e-novatove
WAMP set up and running perfectly for PHP/MySQL development. Can I set
this up to use Ruby without messing it up for PHP/MySQL? It took me a
while to get it working for PHP/MySQL and I don’t want to do anything to
break it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I’m using xampp and had no problems running Rails.
Installing Ruby is quite easy (see the section in the Wiki) and doing
rails with gem is even easier. If you want to use Apache for your
Rails-apps then you have to configure it, but Webrick does the job for
development purposes too.
If you want to be on the save side, backup your http.conf file for
Apache before changing anything on the configuration.
