Stupid basic concept problem


#1

Hy there
I just saw some rails videos.
NICE!!!
So I got this basic principle question: Now I created my jawdropping
application.
But it’s just running localy. Can I kind of export my project to
php&sql. so I can import the database and upload the php to my server to
running it “outside”?
Or do I have a provider that runs ruby?

I dont get this very basic problem. All I see is the ruby code etc.

THX in advance, you guys rocks

Hello Snowy

PHP is a different language entirely and its got nothing to do with Ruby
or
Rails.
You can use the application as is by finding a Ruby on Rails compatible
host. “A Small Orange” (www.asmallorange.com) is one I use and
recommend.
There are others which you can find out about at the Rails website. I
would
also suggest the “Agile Web D. with Rails” book as that will
answer
many of your questions.

Doug

You will need a host that supports Ruby on Rails. There are many hosting
providers listed on the wiki [1].

I use Dreamhost [2] to host a Rails project I’m developing.

Thomas,

… my jawdropping application …is just running localy. Can I
kind of export my
project to php&sql. so I can import the database and upload the
php to my server to
running it “outside”?

If 1/ your “outside” is a company intranet, and 2/you can find a
windows server on the network, you could just use InstantRails to
serve your app to the company. That would be the very simplest way.

Otherwise, you’re right.

Or do I have a provider that runs ruby?
…, you’d have to find a Rails capable hoster.
