Ruby on Rails and gems

  Print

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.

Version information:
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:

actionmailer actionpack actionwebservice
activerecord activesupport gnuplot
mongrel mysql tidy
xml-simple payment rake
bluecloth feedtools htmltools subversion

Additional modules (gems) can be installed by contacting HostGator via live chat, phone, or email to support@osirion.co.za along with your account details.
e.g. Capistrano

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.
