Rails App is not staying in Production Environment

  • Posted September 23, 2014

When I ssh into my box and try to run rails console I get errors but when I type export RAILS_ENV=production then run rails console it works. How do I get my environment to stay in production as the environment?

You can add

export RAILS_ENV=production

to ~/.bashrc so that the RAILS_ENV variable is set to production globally on login. Make sure you log out and log back in so the changes take effect.
