I have built a website using NetBeans 6.8
I believe I'm running ruby 1.8.6
With a mongrel server
and Sqlite3 as the Database

I want to deploy it to a Go Daddy server which uses only Mysql.

I have Mysql installed on my PC (64 bit XP) But I can't get any RoR
applications to migrate with MySql. The Gem is installed but I get

"The bundled mysql.rb driver has been removed from Rails 2.2. Please
install the mysql gem and try again: gem install mysql."

So maybe I am running Rails 2.2

But any ways I can't get a application from scratch to see Mysql, so how
big of deal is it going to be to convert my existing Website to Mysql
that Go daddy runs? I have never deployed a Rails app and Go daddy is
like “were just going to hand you the keys to the front door and you
(meaning me) have to set every thing up”.

So any positive feedback towards the Question of deployment and
converting the app from Sqlite3 to mysql, would be appreciated.
