Ruby on Rails and gems

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.

How do I start using Ruby on Rails? You will need SSH access and follow the instructions in our support forum.

Version information:
Ruby Version : 1.8.6
Gem Version : 1.3.1
Rails Version : 2.3.2 (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 HDWEBPROVIDER™ via live chat, phone, or email to support@hdwebprovider.net along with your account details.
e.g. Capistrano

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.
