I have a domestic server that has Windows 7 and AMP. (Apache, MySQL, PHP) already installed and working. Now, I want to learn and do some work in ROR. But I also want to keep the existing WAMP thing working.
I googled and tried some tutorials to install ROR on WAMP, but it shows me some errors. Like:
Ruby interpreter (CUI) 188.8.131.52 [i386-mswin32] has stopped working
It seems that this is an issue with mySQL.
My Question: is there any way to install ROR with some different database ? Because I do not want to downgrade my version of MySQL.
Rails Installer will do it all for you, there's no need to even touch your WAMP install, it comes with SQLite3 as ParkinT mentioned...
I used these only a few days ago, worked like a dream
YMMV but I found that set up painfully slow. Every bundle exec command would take up to 60 seconds making simple testing a chore. I just got turnkey rails going on windows on a VM and, although harder to initially set up, it already appears to run much faster.
