Notes

  • Example rails application at /var/www/railsapp
    • Apache configured as a load-balancing reverse proxy to a 3-node mongrel cluster
    • Mysql databases setup for production, development and testing
  • Ruby on Rails components (see below for versions)
    • RubyGems package manager installed from upstream tarball
      • Apt and RubyGems are both package management systems and may potentially conflict
      • We recommend using RubyGems for managing Rails components (called gems) and Apt for everything else.
         
    • Other components installed using RubyGems: rails, mysql support, mongrel_cluster, etc. 
  • This release includes all updates included in the 2008.10.17-hardy-x86 releases, such as the new configuration console, and web management interface.
