Installing Ruby on Rails

During my adventure to install Ruby on Rails, I didn’t find a detailed guide explaining the process, what component should be install first, etc.

So here is my note regarding Ruby on Rails installation using gem. Please note that I install the components using gem local installation.

Install the following components first using gem :

# gem install activesupport-1.3.1.gem
Attempting local installation of ‘activesupport-1.3.1.gem’
Successfully installed activesupport, version 1.3.1

Installing RDoc documentation for activesupport-1.3.1…

# gem install actionpack-1.12.3.gem
Attempting local installation of ‘actionpack-1.12.3.gem’
Successfully installed actionpack, version 1.12.3

# gem install actionmailer-1.2.3.gem
Attempting local installation of ‘actionmailer-1.2.3.gem’

# gem install activerecord-1.14.3.gem
Attempting local installation of ‘activerecord-1.14.3.gem’

Then install rails :

# gem install rails-1.1.4.gem
Attempting local installation of ‘rails-1.1.4.gem’
Successfully installed rails, version 1.1.4

After that you can check whether rails has been installed using the following command :

$ rails –help
Usage: /usr/bin/rails /path/to/your/app [options]
