Is there anyone who knows how to configure a rails application to run in a LAMP or WAMP server?
Please share with the guidelines
Thanks in advance!
Breaking it down:
Linux/Windows: if you’ve successfully installed ruby and rails on your machine, job done.
Apache: standard way to get rails running on Apache is with mod_passenger. Detailed instructions here.
I don’t know how new you are to Rails: when I first tried Rails, I was coming at it from a very low-grade PHP background, and I made the mistake of trying to get rails running on Apache on my development set-up. If you’re as green as I was back then, and this is what you’re thinking, stop now: use the built-in development server for development, and worry about passenger when you’re pushing to production. Apart from Apache configuration being a bit of a black art, using a production server on development will slow you right down - you’ll be restarting Apache every time you change a line of code.
MySQL: easiest way is, when starting your project, use the command ‘rails new myproject --database=mysql’. Then change the database.yml file with the MySQL user credentials.
PHP: not necessary. Ever again.
Why do you want configure Rails in a LAMP/WAMP server?
If you use Linux i’d recommend you to use Nginx + Unicorn:
