Installation/Mac OS/Mountain Lion
This guide still needs to be rewritten for the new installation guides form
These instructions are for Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), and have been tested on a MacBook Air.
Install Homebrew and then come back here.
To install MySQL, run the following:
brew install mysql
ln -sfv /usr/local/opt/mysql/*.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgentsthis allows mysql to be run on login.
Now mysql is running, and you have a user named root with no password.
To install ImageMagick, run the following:
brew install imagemagick --with-freetype --with-fontconfig
Without freetype and frontconfig switches, captcha will not work.
To install Git, run the following:
brew install git
To install Redis, run the following:
brew install redis
RubyGems comes preinstalled. However, you might need to update it for use with the latest Bundler. To update RubyGems, run
