I have a site running older versions of Ruby and Rails. It's running
Ruby 1.8.4 and Rails 1.2.2.
It's working fine, but I've set up a new desktop and now I need a
development environment for it.
I look at the latest version of Ruby and Rails and it's not
compatible, so I'm left with two choices.
1. Match the ruby and rails in production for now, while I plan for an
upgrade. The only problem here is that I can't seem to find older
releases of ruby on the ruby website, and the online documentation
doesn't seem to track anything but the latest versions anyway.
2. Upgrade production to the latest, but I'm unsure of the best
procedure to do this. Right now the current boot.rb and environment.rb
files are not even compatible so I'm assuming that I'd start there.
So, what is the recommended upgrade procedure, and where do I find
older copies of Ruby? I'm assuming that I can still find older copies
of rails by specifying the version to gem install.
