I took my setup (Apache2 with virtual hosts, FastCGI, and Ruby on Rails) kicking and screaming into a working situation. So much stuff that didn’t work out of the box, it almost killed my interest in the whole project.
But I want to learn Ruby in conjunction with web-apps, because web-apps is my trade, and that’s where I’ll put Ruby probably to work. So it was kind of a prerequisit.
Next thing I want to do, is submit an article to Ruby on Rails, or something, detailing all the problems (and solutions) I encounterd.
