Description

Build a server or virtual server for Ruby on Rails Development. In this course, we will use Fedora, Ubuntu, or CentOS Linux to set up a server. Virtual Box will be used to create virtual servers. We will install and configure SSHD, vsftpd, Apache, MySQL, SQLite, and PostgreSQL. We will install multiple versions of Ruby using RVM, and we will install Ruby on Rails 4.1. We will then build a simple project to test our server, and then create a clone image that can be used for future projects. If you follow along, at the end you will have a server ready for Ruby on Rails development.
