Getting started with Rails

software development


Hello, I am new to rails and have just set it up on Dreamhost according to the instructions on the Wiki. I can use rails without any problems using the webBrick server (port 3000), but can’t seem to get it going with the normal (port 80) server.

My directory structure for the rails installation is set to the what the instructions said with


I have the ror/public directory symlinked to the http directory and normal html pages are serving up fine.

I created a rails app by performing the command:

in the /home/USERNAME/DOMAIN.COM/ror directory

I can start that server and follow the tutorials that way, but how do I user rails natively without the built in server?
