Comment on "Right Way to Install Rails on Mac OS X?"
by DeLynn Berry — Oct 18
I'm a fan of the Nuby-On-Rails script. Geoffrey Grosenbach certainly knows what he's doing, and I've used the script to install the entire stack on at least three different machines with no problems what-so-ever.

Personally, I think using ports is a bit much (but I have used it before as well and it works).

As for deployment, I'm really fond of running either Apache, Lighttpd or (my new favorite) Litespeed up front to handle static requests, and then proxying your Rails requests off onto a Mongrel instance or cluster.
