Ruby on Rails is a popular web application framework. 20i Managed Hosting allows the easy installation of Ruby on Rails as standard.

Why might you install Ruby on Rails? As a framework, Rails helps you build websites, making the process easier.

Once you've bought a Managed VPS, to enable Rails, you'll need to:

  • Log in to your 20i account
  • After logging in, head to the Manage VPS section of the control panel
  • After selecting 'Manage', a list of applications and software should be presented on the right-hand side of the page under VPS Software
  • From this point, select the slider to install Ruby on Rails (installation may take a minute or two).
