This post helps you Installing ruby on rails 3, on windows platform. So without wasting your time, here we go.
- Download the latest stable release of ruby. ( In our case we are taking Ruby 1.9.3 & Rails 3 )
- Install it like any other program you do.
- Open command prompt & navigate to ruby > in directory & run following command to check version
> ruby –version
it should output something like this
ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09) [i386-mingw32]Now run following to update ruby & then installing gemcutter
> gem update –system
> gem sources -a http://gemcutter.orgNow time to install Rails. Run following command.
> gem install rails
after installation, it will show a message ‘Successfully installed rails-3.0 ‘you can check the rails version by following command
> rails –v
Now, lets create your first application after that we can test it in browser. To create a new application run this command.
> rails new yourappname
this will create all directories needed by your application & will setup all configuration files as well. Under bin directory (where you are right now), you can see a new folder with yourappname
Now, navigate to that app folder just created and run following command.
> bundle install
Now the final step. Starting the rails server
> rails server
when you run this command. It will show some output like this.
=> Booting WEBrick
=> Rails 3.0.10 application starting in development on http://0.0.0.0:3000
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server
[2011-08-29 08:56:17] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1

[2011-08-29 08:56:17] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=4000 port=3000
Now to test your server running, open this in your browser.
