Please help me I am brand new to this.
I have been following this tutorial from OnLamp
which tells you how to install ruby, rails and mySQL and get going.
Doing this tutorial convinced me RoR was the way to go for me.
So I got hold of this e-book:
Agile Web D. with Rails - The Pragmatic Programmers
The book tells me to install everything I need, including and Apache web
server using InstantRails.
When I check OnLamp tutorial carefully, sure enough there is a link to
an updated version using InstantRails.
My question then:
Should I install InstantRails?
If I do, do I need to uninstall Ruby, Rails, and mySQL database first?
My boss is likely to be less than sympathetic if I make a mess of my PC
by experimenting with a new system. I was hoping to develop the web
application FIRST, without drawing attention to myself and THEN make the
case for using RoR.
