I have been running a website on my personal server for a number of years now. I get those requests constantly. They are just bots scanning for vulnerabilities. Check your firewall and close any ports that are not required.
Ignore them. They look like automated scripts looking for common vulnerabilities in sites on the Internet. You say your site is built using RoR so the server most likely doesn't contain software like phpmyadmin. You won't be affected.
so it could be that you've got an instance of a known rails bug as there was recently an XSS issue in internationalization. CVE-2013-4991 In the first instance, if you can, I'd recommend upgrading to a patched version or applying the workaround in the link above.
