Hello, I'm going to order a dedicated server for my RoR application, but don't know which nix distro is the best for hosting RoR application? Debian Etch, Ubuntu 6.06 or 6.10, Fedora Core 5 or 6? Thanks in advance, - Dunnil

The better question is, which distro is your server administrator most comfortable with. This is where you'll see the most benefits in your choice. -Robby -- Robby Russell http://www.robbyonrails.com/ http://www.planetargon.com/

Use the distro/database/webserver/etc... you're most comfortable with.

Hi Michael, I strongly recommend Debian Etch, unless you are using the very latest ubunbtu. It is just like ubuntu, except that you can use apache 2.2 and subversion in their more recent versions without compiling from source (you can get them from apt-get). I have setup both a rails debian etch box (recently), and a dapper drake box. The current Ubuntu that is coming out/just came out will have these programs in apt-get, so as long as it is the latest, it is a non-issue.

You might also look at using Freebsd; OpenBSD might cause problems with some gems. Stephan

The deprec gem is cool; I've been playing around with it lately. It works with Ubuntu and makes the work of setting everything up a breeze: http://deprec.rubyforge.org/ I don't know if it works with 7.04 or not, though; I think I'll set it up tonight just to see... --Jeremy On 4/23/07, Human Dunnil <email@example.com> wrote: > > > > -- http://www.jeremymcanally.com/ My free Ruby e-book: http://www.humblelittlerubybook.com/book/ My blogs: http://www.mrneighborly.com/ http://www.rubyinpractice.com/
