    Ruby on Rails with no Shell Access


    Hey everyone,

    My host is restricting shell access to my server, so I'm having troubles getting started with Ruby. I have reseller cPanel hosting, and have access to the cPanel Ruby menu, though it dosen't seem of very good use.

    I'm looking for advice on how I can give Ruby a try on my host, or looking for other hosting options.

    Thanks!

    What HTTP server is your host running? If they're using LiteSpeed you may be able to configure a Ruby on Rails application through a ls_rails_config. Also you'll probably get a more definitive answer from your host about how to accomplish your goal- it's their servers and configurations after all.
