Which download should i use?


#1

in the next couple of days i am going to download and install both ruby
and rails and was wondering if i should use “instant raila” or the "one
click installer? i just want to make sure i get everything i need to use
them. i have ordered the book simply rails 2 and it suggests using
instant rails rather than the one click installer.

                                              Thanks.

With Instant Rails you get a full stack to start developing Rails
including MySQL I believe. The O. Click Installer is just Ruby - you’ll
need to set up the rest yourself. If you’re a beginner and the book
favors Instant Rails, then by all means go for that.
