I have now set off in an attempt to test Ruby on Rails and Typo, a Ruby on Rails Conetent Management System. Getting Rails set up on Dreamhost was fairly straight forward, however waiting for the DNS settings for the new subdomain to kick in is taking its time.

Conetent Management Systems that we have looked at or are currently looking at include Joomla!, Typo, and Drupal. The main functionality we will require with this Content Management System is integration with some Forum Software (none of which yet seems to integrate seemlessly enough for our needs), Some kind of Wiki, and Subversion.

Currently it looks like we will need to work on integrating current technologies together, and tying their databases into one. This makes the project a whole lot more complex than it should need to be. This is one reason we are currently looking at moving away from PHP solutions and moving towards RoR solutions. Once each of the packages have been tested with some Forum and Wiki packages, it will be a matter of determining the most useful combination of software/platforms/databases. There is still a lot of time to be put into testing at this stage.

Cheers, Chris.
