Help with Installing Rails on Cloud9

Hey :) When I follow the video to create a new workspace, I don't get an option to change my type of workspace to git, and instead of 'type of workspace' it's replaced with 'hosting'. Please help? :S

Er, I'm not sure what you're doing here.

  1. Click Create New Workspace in the Dashboard
  2. Select the 1st option
  3. Select RoR
  4. Let it load, and then type rails new $APPNAME in the shell c9 gives you
  5. Start the rails server like so: rails s -p $PORT -b $IP
  6. Go to $WORKSPACE.$USERNAME.c9.io to see your app.

Thanks for the response, but I figured it out before you posted it :) much appreciated.
