Almost finished installation of Ruby/Rails on webappX, as per this page: http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/Rails+on+C... Since the Rails procedure requires it, I also had to install all the MySQL 5 packages incl. devel on both webappX - but of course disabled mysqld from starting since we want it to talk to the instance on mysql0. Very close to the end I hit what is probably a minor snag. Rather than guess at the answer, I thought we would ask the experts The document says this: gem install mysql -- --with-mysql-config=/usr/bin/mysql_config Select option 1 - mysql 2.7.1 (ruby) And here's what I saw when running it: [root@webapp0 ~]# gem install mysql -- --with-mysql-config=/usr/bin/ mysql_config Select which gem to install for your platform (i386-linux) 1. mysql 2.7.3 (mswin32) 2. mysql 2.7.1 (mswin32) 3. mysql 2.7 (ruby) 4. mysql 2.6 (ruby) 5. mysql 2.5.1 (ruby) 6. Cancel installation > Which one should I select? What's with the mswin32? Using CentOS 4.4 (same as RHEL 4 Update 4) and MySQL 5. Thanks!

Hi, you should go with option 3. mswin32 means it is a version for Windows users. Kind regards, Nick Snels --http://www.railshostinginfo.com Compare Rails hosting companies
