I’m using Ubuntu 10.4 and have managed to get a rails environment up and running. It took some Googling and messing around, but it’s working now!
So I started a new application:
rails new <project name> -d=mysql
That managed to setup my project files.
Then I thought I’d get my webrick web server up and running
That didn’t work. Try running bundle install says the terminal.
This could take a while...
That failed. So I found a spot where I had to do the following. Though I though I did this, I did it again. What’s the harm right?
sudo apt-get install libmysql-ruby libmysqlclient-dev
The I did
gem install rails
gem install mysql
With all this, I then did
and whalah, I go to localhost:3000 and it works. Finally. Though I may have performed some redundant steps, I’m ready to go now. Live and learn.
