If you are on Ubuntu, the rails_port packages in my PPA might be of help.
They were originally meant to get new OSM developers up and running quicker,
but I guess they might also be used by "users" of the "OSM rails_port"
software. Assuming the packages still work (which they might not, as they
pull the code directly from http://git.openstreetmap.org/rails.git/ and thus
change every time some one commits something and can break), it should get
you up and running with the website code together with the API and backend
Note though, that the rails port will pull tiles from osm.org for its slippy
map and not from your own database. For this you will need to additionally
set up your own tile server and sync it with your API database. Then you
need to configure it to pull tiles from there.
However, the rails_port code is very tailor made to OpenStreetMap.org and
not ideally modularized to be well configurable for third party sites. So
you might hit some issues, although hopefully it should be ok if you are
fine with just the features on osm.org.
