Hi

@dale. Yes , I also think that going into Ruby for rails is waste of time for now. Though it might be an option later.

On the other hand, if you want similar or much better functionality, check CakePHP framework.

You can read a review here:

What’s Wrong With Ruby?

Hi dale,

Many thanks for your help - its appreciated.

Since this is about Ruby on Rails, I have this much to say about it. I went ahead and learned how to use the php language, and I'm just not impressed with Ruby on Rails. It looks like one more script editor that wastes time to learn when all that I have to do is learn the php. But that is just an opinion.
Well I will have to see what all the shouting is about Ruby. Need to have a play first before I can make a valid judgement (if at all!).
Have you tried Cake PHP? Whats your opinion?

I also agree with you that Apache2triad is not dead. Look at the others, you will find this is the best WAMP by far!

Cheers again Dale
Dave

Hi

I did not say that Apache2triad is not the best or is lacking in features. I just pointed out that not much development is seen as compared to other Wamps.


Apache2triad is by far the best wamp solution, but it needs to keep up with the competition.

Now just look at how Xampp are active.

http://www.apachefriends.org/en/news.html

XAMPP will showcase at the MySQL Conference 2007
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/news-article,97323.html


Just read their news section and you will know how active they are whereas A2T seems dead. If you click the Betas Download link, it goes to link which has not files in it. Empty folder.

Also, read the news on the main page. Its still the old news.

I am not trying to start which package is better etc.

Just trying to point out that this project needs some limelight.

Hi

So what should be the best way to tackle this situation.

Should new developers be included in the team ?

There's been some un-official quick hack updates. Honestly though development has been done by one person with a small amount of contributions for bug fixes.

Mancini, handles virtually all aspects of A2T. Development, support, testing, bug fixes. My hats off to him because it isn't easy, and is time consuming.

apache2triad can be easily configured for ruby on rails if u have installed ruby and ruby on rails
suppose the installation directory is c:/apache2triad/ruby

you need to install the mod_fcgid module also which you can get from here

http://www.apachelounge.com/download/mods/mod_fcgid-2.2a-w32.zip

Copy mod_fcgid.so to your apache/modules folder

then add the following lines to your httpd.conf file

Code:

#ruby config
LoadModule fcgid_module modules/mod_fcgid.so
SocketPath c:/apache2triad/htdocs/sneakymustard/tumble/tmp/fcgidsock
SharememPath c:/apache2triad/htdocs/sneakymustard/tumble/tmp/fcgidshm
DefaultInitEnv RAILS_ENV production

<Directory c:/apache2triad/htdocs/sneakymustard/tumble/public>
   Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
   AllowOverride AuthConfig Indexes Limit
   Order allow,deny
   Allow from all
   
   AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi
   
   FCGIWrapper "C:/apache2triad/ruby c:/apache2triad/htdocs/sneakymustard/tumble/public/dispatch.fcgi" .fcgi
   
   RewriteEngine On
   RewriteRule ^$ index.html [QSA]
   RewriteRule ^([^.]+)$ $1.html [QSA]
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.fcgi [QSA,L]
</Directory>



and its done[/code]
