    Default New Ruby On Rails knowledge base article Added

    I've finally gotten the time to update the bluehost ruby on rails knowledge base article. This is much more comprehensive than the old version and holds your hand the whole way through, even if you're not a programmer (though it does help to be a programmer if you would like to write web applications using ruby on rails :) ). Using this tutorial you should be able to set up a basic ruby on rails application, and assuming you're a decent programmer, you'll be well on your way to developing a more full-featured ruby on rails application.

    Oh, right. I guess I shouldn't have used the internal url :)

    My url has been fixed.

    Cool, I'm going to have to look into it. If anyone on OSX needs a test environment for this check out Locomotive. -arstechnica link

    I'll find out soon enough how well it treats non-programmers. :p

    Thanks for the writing it.

    Very nice work Rando, I've been interested in Ruby/Ruby on Rails recently; in fact one of my main selling points with BH was that they supported Ruby. I'll be sure to look at your tutorial after I finish with the other stack of languages that I've been putting off learning. ;)

    I went through it and found it very helpful and easy. Although I don't think that I'll ever use ROR, becasue I'm happy with PHP...but maybe in the near future I'll make the switch.

    Default Good Start but what about a Wiki?

    The tutorial is a good start, but...
    FastCGI?
    Ruby Gems?
    Ajax support?
    Symbolic links?

    All of the RoR books and generic tutorials seem to be based on the assumption that you both own and know how to administer your host computer, web server, and database. This is most often not the case for we devoted BH subscribers :)

    I would suggest a BH RoR Wiki that would allow both the support team and subscribers to contribute their "gems" of knowlege gained from facing and overcoming the obsticals imposed by using BH shared servers.

    just my 2 cents

    Rando:

    Can you suggest a good book on Ruby on Rails?

    This is great, but it assumes the user is creating a Ruby app from scratch. What I'd like to do (and have tried several times without success) is to install an established Ruby app, like Tracks (http://www.rousette.org.uk/projects/). There are instructions for installing it on Dreamhost, but it didn't work for me. Has anyone gotten Tracks running on Bluehost, and can you post simple instructions on how to do so?

    On a related note, why does every Ruby tutorial start with "make a subdomain"? Can't you just put it in a subdirectory and run it through http://www.mydomain.com/rubyapp, like PHP apps can?

    Thanks for any help!
