1-Click RoR installation: how is 'rails' user supposed to install gems?
This is my first time using a 1-Click droplet with Ubuntu and Ruby on Rails.
I logged into the droplet as the rails user and tried to add Devise to the preinstalled rails app, but got a permissions error when running
bundle install. Similarly, if I try something like
gem install nokogiri, I get an error saying that I don’t have write permissions to the the /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby… directory.
What is the normal way to add gems to the rails app? I assume not by becoming root, right?
