Ruby Update on Redmine Instance Error

After successful attempt to update Redmine ( from 3.0.3 to 3.3.3 ) I tried to update Ruby version ( from 2.0.0 to 2.1.4 or 2.2.1 or 2.3.1 ) using rvm The commands that I used are :

  • rvm install 2.2.1 / 2.1.4 / 2.3.1
  • rvm user --default 2.2.1 / 2.1.4 / 2.3.1
  • cd /srv/redmine
  • bundle update
  • bundle exec rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production
  • bundle exec rake redmine:plugins:migrate RAILS_ENV=production
  • bundle exec rake tmp:cache:clear tmp:sessions:clear RAILS_ENV=production
  • touch tmp/restart.txt

After doing those steps successfully, I encounter below error

[ 2017-03-10 11:42:09.6397 1680/7f1db50ec700 App/Implementation.cpp:303 ]: Could not spawn process for application /srv/redmine: An error occured while starting up the preloader.
  Error ID: f1f723b1
  Error details saved to: /tmp/passenger-error-NLN2oJ.html
  Message from application: <p>It looks like Bundler could not find a gem. Maybe you didn't install all the gems that this application needs. To install your gems, please run:</p>

  <pre class="commands">bundle install</pre>

<p>If that didn't work, then maybe the problem is that your gems are installed to <code>/var/www/.rvm/gems</code>, while at the same time you set <code>PassengerRuby</code> (Apache) or <code>passenger_ruby</code> (Nginx) to <code>/usr/local/rvm/wrappers/ruby-2.0.0-p643/ruby</code>. Because of the latter, RVM does not load gems from the home directory.</p>

<p>To make RVM load gems from the home directory, you need to set <code>PassengerRuby</code>/<code>passenger_ruby</code> to an RVM wrapper script inside the home directory:</p>

  <li>Login as www-data.</li>
  <li>Enable RVM mixed mode by running:
      <pre class="commands">rvm user gemsets</pre></li>
  <li>Run this to find out what to set <code>PassengerRuby</code>/<code>passenger_ruby</code> to:
      <pre class="commands">/usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.0.0-p643/wrappers/ruby \
/usr/bin/passenger-config --detect-ruby</pre></li>

<p>If that didn't help either, then maybe your application is being run under a different environment than it's supposed to. Please check the following:</p>

  <li>Is this app supposed to be run as the <code>www-data</code> user?</li>
  <li>Is this app being run on the correct Ruby interpreter? Below you will
      see which Ruby interpreter Phusion Passenger attempted to use.</li>
  <li>Please check whether the correct RVM gemset is being used.</li>
  <li>Sometimes, RVM gemsets may be broken.
      <a href="">Try resetting them.</a></li>

<p>-------- The exception is as follows: -------</p>
Could not find json-1.8.6 in any of the sources (Bundler::GemNotFound)

I’m not too familiar with ruby & passenger but I think that my the passenger is still detecting ruby 2.0.0 as my main ruby installation ( even though rvm list already pointing into another ruby version )

Any help would be much appreciated :D

Finally found the answer.

I should update the passenger_ruby entry on /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

update the entry to your ruby installation path should fix the issue

    Hi hansen,

    Thanks for the response, however I don’t think that it was the case since if I run bundle list then json version 1.8.6 is included in the list. I think the problem lies in passenger that is still searching in ruby 2.0.0 even though I already update my ruby to 2.3.1

    bundle list
      * hashie (1.2.0)
      * htmlentities (4.3.1)
      * i18n (0.7.0)
      * iconv (1.0.4)
      * inifile (3.0.0)
      * jquery-rails (3.1.4)
      * json (1.8.6)
      * listen (3.0.8)
      * loofah (2.0.3)
      * lumberjack (1.0.11)
