Trying using google to search for “rails apache mysql tutorial”. It brings back lots of tutorials. The first one covers a lot of what you’re asking.

I would recommend reading a tutorial on each step individually, and getting them working one by one, so you understand how they all work. One magic tutorial that does them all will probably be a lot less reliable than a good tutorial for each.

Also, if you’re just trying to get your application live, and you don’t really want to learn about the infrastructure, I’d recommend looking at Heroku, which handles a lot of the pain for you.

One final tip - you’ll probably want to use Passenger, so google that as well.

This is what I used. I was able to get it done. I ran into a problem
and I just needed to uninstall and reinstall the gems. Good luck!

What I want is to start developing a website on Rails, nothing else, I
wanted to use mysql because it what my hosting provides, so the question
is what you recommend me to develop? Is it Apache + mysql + Rails? or

If you’re starting developing a website, then I wouldn’t worry about setting up the server yet. Getting stuff working on your local machine is very easy with Rails. You don’t need apache, etc. Just choose and install a database and follow a basic Rails tutorial to get you going. If you have a specific host you are using then MySQL is fine. If you are considering Heroku, then maybe look at PostgreSQL.

Once you’ve got an app ready to go, then install apache, passenger and mysql/postgres on the server and you should be away. It’s actually not very complex. For reference, the last machine I did it on involved these steps: http://www.ihid.co.uk/blog/creating-an-ec2-webserver-using-amazon-s-basic-ami
