How to set Rails environment permanently?
I have Ruby on Rails 5, NginX, and Ubuntu 16.04. running on my droplet. The app has been running for a number of years, however, for some reason it keeps reverting back to development mode.

rake about it tells me that Rails is in development mode.
This is strange because I am telling Rails very clearly that I want it to run in production mode, for example in my unicorn configuration file:
Whenever I do something on the server, for example, run a migration I tell Rails that it should be done in a production context:
rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production
But still Rails seems to be running in development mode all the time.
This command doesn’t help either:
RAILS_ENV=production rake about
How can I set my Rails app to production mode permanently?
