Do you offer Ruby on Rails and gems?

Ruby on Rails is an open-source web application framework. It aims to increase the speed and ease with which database-driven web sites can be created.

RoR runs on Apache CGI.

How do I start using Ruby on Rails? You will need SSH access and follow the instructions in our technical support forum.

Version information:
Ruby Version : 1.8.6
Gem Version : 1.3.1
Rails Version : 2.3.2 (may need to request this update)

Currently we have the following modules installed:

  • actionmailer
  • actionpack
  • actionwebservice
  • activerecord
  • activesupport
  • mongrel
  • mysql
  • tidy
  • xml-simple
  • payment
  • rake
  • bluecloth
  • feedtools
  • htmltools
  • subversion
    Additional modules (gems) can be installed by contacting TechHausHost via live chat, phone, or email to along with your account details.
    e.g. Capistrano


    eRuby is not supported because Ruby runs as CGI on the shared servers. Additionally, eRuby requires mod_ruby to be installed, which we do not have.

    The above is a list of plugins (modules/gems) not actual executable programs. Some of these modules can be installed as programs, but only on dedicated servers, not on shared.
