Ruby on Rails is an open-source web application framework. It aims to increase the speed and ease with which database-driven web sites can be created.
RoR runs on Apache CGI.
Ruby Version : 1.8.7
Gem Version : 1.3.5
Rails Version : 2.3.5 (may need to request this update)
Currently we have the following modules installed:
Additional modules (gems) can be installed by contacting HostGator via live chat, phone, or email to email@example.com along with your account details.
VPS and Dedicated servers are less restrictive when requesting/applying modules.
Currently, we are refusing Rails 2.3.8 upgrades on shared servers, since it is broken with Mongrel. A VPS or dedicated server would be required if you want Rails 2.3.8. We are waiting for a new version of Mongrel to come out before we make any further advancements.
eRuby is not supported because Ruby runs as CGI on the shared servers. Additionally, eRuby requires mod_ruby to be installed, which we do not have.
The above is a list of plugins (modules/gems) not actual executable programs. Some of these modules can be installed as programs, but only on dedicated servers, not on shared.
