Deploying Rails Application on Hostgator


I have been trying to deploy rails application on HostGator. As I am new to deployment I am facing the following problem. I am unable to bundle few gems(contact_us, mysql2) with ruby 1.8.7 installed on Hostgator. Can anyone guide on how to deploy an existing application of versions Ruby-1.8.7 and rails 3.2.19 via hostgator.

Ruby 1.8.7 is completely unsupported - no more security patches. If hostgator can’t sort you out with a newer version of ruby then it’s time to run a mile.
