Ruby Gems Installation

Problem:

How do I install my own Ruby Gems?

Solution:

  1. Using File Manager in your cPanel make a copy of the .bashrc file in your root directory, name it .bashrc.bak.
  2. Now edit the .bashrc file and add the following to the end of the file:
    • export GEM_HOME=$HOME/ruby/gems
    • export GEM_PATH=$GEM_HOME:/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.3
    • export GEM_CACHE=$GEM_HOME/cache
    • export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/ruby/gems/sass-3.4.21/bin/
  3. When using a rails application, make sure you add the following to your ./config/environment.rb:
    • ENV['GEM_PATH'] = '/path/to/your/home/ruby/gems:/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.3'
