Rails Troubleshooting

Problem:

Rails Troubleshooting!

Solution

Make sure you have SSH enabled in order to follow these directions as it is required to install gems locally.

1. Add the following lines to your $HOME/.bashrc file (these can be copy and pasted):
               export GEM_HOME=$HOME/ruby/gems
               export GEM_PATH=$GEM_HOME:/lib64/ruby/gems/1.9.3
               export GEM_CACHE=$GEM_HOME/cache
               export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/ruby/gems/bin
2. Now, you'll have to edit the source file for the rack gem. This *should* be located here:
               $HOME/ruby/gems/gems/rack-1.1.6/lib/rack/handler/fastcgi.rb
Just comment out line #7 so it looks like this:
               #alias _rack_read_without_buffer read
3. Now modify the applications environment.rb file so that the correct gem path is included. This line should go up at the top before the version of rails is specified:
              ENV['GEM_PATH'] = '/path/to/their/home/ruby/gems:/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.3'
4. Kill off fastcgi processes.
