    eRuby: A tutorial on using Ruby on the web

    I wrote up a tutorial on how to get going using Ruby on the web without using Rails. Hopefully this will spark some interest in Ruby and get this forum going.

    Now there are four articles including how to get Ruby MySQL or PostGreSQL database connections on windows. Everything you need if you have a good shared host like Dreamhost, Bluehost, grokthis and many others that support eruby.

    Next tutorials will be on the filesystem and then sessions.

    Windows IIS supported

    Someone sent me an email about running Ruby on Windows IIS. So after a few minutes I found out that it was as easy as running perl.exe. The eRuby interpreter works fine in sending the information on to the Ruby library. So now there's a tutorial on this.

    Hi good afternoon! Your article is just what I need! Unfortunately I wasn't able to use eruby because IIS generated an error that goes on like this:

    HTTP 401.3 - Access denied by ACL on resource
    Internet Information Services

    I don't understand why this happened. I'm running Windows xp sp2 with IIS, mysql and apache web server installed. Please help me, this will aid our thesis. Thankyou so much and God bless!

    cool! I got eruby working on iis 7.0 however... when i used this code on (rhtml):

    require 'mysql'

    iis reports that require could not locate 'mysql' however when i used a ruby(.rb file) equivalent, it works... i wonder what's wrong. Mysql, mysql-ruby 2.7, eruby, ruby 1.8 and iis 7.0 is installed on my vista system.

    It is a general purpose scripting language like perl.. you can do a lot of things with it.. from web application to desktop application.
