Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This post is a part of a mini-series!
1) Installing link
2) Test a Rails App! (You Are Here)
3) Configuring Webserver link
4) Configuring MySql link
Finally we made it! We setup our debian machine, and can test a rails application out. This entry entails my first rails creation. Looks like we'll have a few more entries in this blog that explain how to setup a rails app using an alternative database engine, web server, and...
OK, MySql is installed, we did that in passing as we installed our webserver and php.
It was a total breeze, but if you've forgotten how we did that, go there.
What we need now is to:
1) Setup mysql to be connected to by a specific remote machine
2) Create a test user
3) Create a test database
4) Connect to it remotely through SSH
5) Connect to it programatically with a language (i'll use c# and php too maybe)
In the first part of this tutorial, all we really did was install git, and setup an account at github where we made a public repository and pushed an empty readme file to it.
In this second part, we're going to create another repository, and this time, we'll push a snazzy mono application to it.
To set this tutorial up, I will be doing the first set of instructions with my linux machine, and I will do the second section with my windows machine.
