The most appropriate place for questions about or problems with Rails
would be a Rails forum. This mailing list is for discussion of Ruby, the
programming language.

I would advise you to try the Bitnami Rubystack.
Once installed you have the complete bunch of Ruby, Rubygem and Rails,
including Apache, MySQL and more.

Greetings,
