Hello, I setup a droplet and chose Ubuntu 12.04. I added Ruby/Rails but realized it came with Redmine which is a nice proof of functionality at runtime but I don’t need it. Upon further inspection I realized it’s running Ruby 1.87 and that’s not an option.
I setup rvm as a root user. Pushed my rails app code over to the instance, installed Ruby 2.1.1, ran bundle install to get all my gems installed and once I had migrated and populated my database, voila, I have an instance that can run from the command line (i.e. rails server). I am able to interact with it on port 3000 (the default) via an external system and all works fine. All great stuff. Now for the interesting part.
I want to run this same setup on Apache via phusion/passenger. The version in that instance looked a bit dated so I went through the update process. I can’t seem to get my instance running. When I try to start it I get errors indicating that:
“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: bundle install”. My assumption is that it’s finding the wrong ruby/gems. Any help here would be appreciated.
I added the following lines to the end of my apache2.conf file:
LoadModule passenger_module /email@example.com/gems/passenger-4.0.40/buildout/apache2/mod_passenger.so <IfModule mod_passenger.c> PassengerRoot /firstname.lastname@example.org/gems/passenger-4.0.40 PassengerDefaultRuby /email@example.com/wrappers/ruby </IfModule>
Stumped. Thanks in advance.
