Do you have any plans to support Ruby on Rails?



Ruby on Rails is supported (with Gold and higher plans)

Thank you, Admin



I upgraded my plan today to take advantage of this, but I don't see the option to use it on my control panel.  Am I doing something wrong?


i think you have to contact the admin to allow him to enable it on your account


Well, Reply #1 on: March 10, 2006

Are you sure it's still supported at all?


If not I'll be pretty ticked.   >:(

I upgraded just for it because I saw a post from an admin saying that's how to go about it.


Well, hopefully they still have it. It definitely isn't listed on the plans page though:


Well, apparently it isn't supported any longer, but I think the support staff must have seen this (or the email I sent them asking what I should do) because I'm back to a Silver account and have 4$ in my paypal account (amount I paid to go from Silver -> Gold).  Thanks for the rapid response FreePgs, even if it's not the result I would have hoped for (actually getting RoR), it's the most honest alternative.


Yes, Ruby was disable a long time ago. If I remember correctly, this was due to there not being many ways to limit the usage of these languages, and they allowed exploits on the server.

Edit: Here's something from the site news a long time ago...

Title: Perl, Ruby, And Python

Perl, Ruby, and Python have been disabled globally.

This is due to the increased number of fraudulent files appearing in some users accounts and the inability to restrict access with these languages.

Users who need Perl or Python can be moved to the Plesk server. Users needing Ruby will have to purchase an account through LVCS.Net
