It’s almost a day that I’m trying to get things working in here.
I’ve set-up a small home server (actually is my old HP laptop running ubuntu 10.04) with some server applications like apache, mysql-server and other stuff like php5, ruby, and RAILS.
So reading TFM, I’ve installed ruby, then gems and finally rails…
My command history looks something like this:
sudo apt-get install ruby rubygems ...
gem install -y rails
Then I used the rails command to build a new web application, and then I’ve tested if all worked correctly
Directed my browser to the famous address(localhost:3000), first I’ve got the message
then I decided to refresh the page and then I’ve got
Internal Server Error private method `gsub!' called for #<Class:0xb6ff44dc>
After that, it been a long road until now, with installs , remove , clean, installs of various combinations of ruby and rails versions…untile I finally decided to give up.
For the last time I was installing RoR, but this time I tried without installing ruby and gems, but I let ubuntu install rails for me
sudo apt-get install rails
After this last command I found that ubuntu installs all that you may need for rails, with only one command.
‘Finally!’ – I said! Let’s try this time if it works!!
‘Maybe there is a problem with WEBrick!’ – I thought, and I’ve installed another ‘web server’ for rails, called Mongrel, and used that to launch my first web app.
sudo apt-get install mongrel ruby script/server mongrel
…well, thanks man!
Let the journey with rails begin!
