Ruby on Rails Impossible Windows

Hello,
Ruby on Rails still, as I think, very poor with MS Windows. I make the
comparison as a PHP user.
In some minutes, I have got Apache running PHP easily. In Ruby On Rails,
there is no such breeze. I expect in the future, Ruby on Rails is going
to offer something like php4apache.dll to make life easier.
As I think, There are three things made PHP popular:
1st, The ease of installation
2nd, The complete, detailed and perfect organized documentation
3rd, The variety of free tutorials and resources
Conclusion, Ruby on Rails disappointed me.
Best Regards,

Did you try InstantRails. It makes setup an absolute breeze on Windows
and you can be up and running in just a few minutes.

If you look through this forum, you will even see that one of the ruby
users has taken the time to make a video on how to do it.

Sorry you are disappointed. Perhaps a quick glance at InstantRails will
change your opinion.

You setting up a web server app or a local install for dev ?
If just development then get InstantRails.
You can find it on rubyforge.com

Aside from that I remember struggling a bit early back with PHP and
Apache. Rails will work.

Ok Michael,

that I already have.

Engines IS a plugin

It will install a copy of mySQL 4.x (I don’t remember the exact
version). You’ll have to do a little reconfigure if you want to use
your own copy.

I’ve used InstantRails on several Windows platforms, with and without an
existing MySQL installation. It was easiest for me to change the port
on
the existing MySQL, leaving InstantRails to run on the default port:
3306.
If you don’t, when InstantRails starts up, you will get a message saying
that it’s MySQL server didn’t start because of a port conflict. You can
configure your rails app to talk to your existing MySQL, the one with
InstantRails, or both.

Give it a try.

On suggestion for the original question: http://
www.agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins is a directory of plugins
available for Rails.
