I'm pretty nooby to FreeBSD and I only have worked before with ROR on Mac OS and Heroku. Now I've got VPS with installed FreeBSD 8 and found it problematic to install ror 3 with mongrel properly. Google gives me only really outdated guides, so I was wondering, if you guys could recommend me any good link (or recommendations) with step-by-step guide on it.
Many thanks!
