Your best bet is to use either rvm or some virtualization technology
like VirtualBox or VMWare to create a “sandbox” that you can set up
exactly as the current production server is configured.
Same version of Ruby, RubyGems, Rails, and all the required gems.
If you do that, the app should run “as is”. If it doesn’t, figure out
Does the app have tests? If so, run them; if any of them fail, it’ll
you a lot. If it doesn’t have tests, write some.
In any case, get the tests to run and/or the app to run without any
Then you can start upgrading things one at a time.
What you are trying to do is not easy for someone without much
Rails experience, but it is possible and you’ll learn a lot.
But let me again emphasize:
use git. write tests. change one thing at a time. <<
