Windows Server 2003/2208 with IIS : How to make it as RoR web server?


#1

Hi guys,

Been busy researching yesterday on how to create a RoR development web
server environment, on a box running on Windows 2003 or 2008 with IIS
enable.

2nd, I am downloading a Ubuntu, trying to create a linux box to host
RoR development, as most of RoR users suggested to use as server OS.
Problem is, I am a window guy, do you have a good tutorial on
installing Ubuntu down to installing/setup RoR inorder to a production
like environment?

3rd, any good guides on beginning development on RoR with existing
database(Ms Sql 2000)

br,

I found
http://www.hackido.com/2009/04/install-ruby-rails-on-ubuntu-904-jaunty.htmlvery
helpful (actually I was using a previous version of the guide as I was
using ubuntu 8.10).

As far as using a windows box for RoR server I am sure it is possible
but I
suspect most would advise that it is much easier on Linux.

As for installing Ubuntu, download the CD image and go for it.

For RoR my link
http://www.hackido.com/2009/04/install-ruby-rails-on-ubuntu-904-jaunty.htmlis
for a desktop version, but I think it should not be much different on
a
server.
