Updated the VPS guide, which is now 20 pages .. tho the last two are incomplete. I can probably finish it in 25 pages. (No hurry.)

Ruby on Rails

Installed Ruby on Rails today, on my laptop, where it seems to be working fine. Also installed RoR on the Rad VPS, but it seems to be having trouble there. (Problems identified.)

Ruby is a programming (scripting) language (not unlike PHP), known to have elegant syntax. Some even call it artistic.

Rails is a Web Application Framework (not unlike the Zend Framework for PHP) which is built with (and based on) the Ruby scripting language.

The Ruby installer, by itself (not including rails), dumped some 20,000 files on my hard drive. Took a long time to extract them all. (3,000 folders)

I'm endeavoring to get my feet wet in the programming world. I'd like to learn PHP, MySQL (database) & Ruby on Rails.

UPDATE » Seems Ruby & Rails are both installed correctly on the server. (Good.) The problem is with the Rails application. I did not create that app. I'm guessing it was installed by my old host (Lunarpages), who originally installed RoR for me. So I plan to simply delete that (dysfunctional) app and create & install a new one.

For more along these lines, here's a Google search, preconfigured for the query » ruby on rails
