RoR on your web server

Well, my first question for this group. So hi everyone,

I just installed RoR on my Mac today and would like to develop a site
for a client but I don’t know whether his web space has RoR on it
(probably not) and if not, would it be possible to install it on the
web server? would I need special permissions for it? and if possible,
how do I do that on a Linux server?

TIA,
Elle

Hi Elle,

To install and configure RoR you will most likely need root access, or
ask the hosting provider to do it. Guides for installing on most recent
distributions are available. What distribution and version of Linux are
you targeting? What webserver are they using? Theres a Google Group
specifically for deploying Rails application at
http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-deployment which may be a
good place to look as well.
