Things after *#* are comments, and it is no use to type this stuff in ;)

h3. Untar
36 1 Stephan Schuberth
37 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>tar zxvf ruby-1.8.7.pXXX.tar.gz</pre>
38 1 Stephan Schuberth
39 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Install
40 1 Stephan Schuberth
41 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>cd ruby-1.8.7.pXXX
42 1 Stephan Schuberth
./configure
43 1 Stephan Schuberth
make
44 1 Stephan Schuberth
make install</pre>
45 1 Stephan Schuberth
46 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Check installation
47 1 Stephan Schuberth
48 1 Stephan Schuberth
If this does not work, it is probably because there is no ruby at /usr/bin to be found. 
49 1 Stephan Schuberth
If it works, skip directly to "Get Gems 1.4.2".
50 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>ruby -v</pre>
51 1 Stephan Schuberth
52 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Fix dependencies with a symlink
53 1 Stephan Schuberth
54 1 Stephan Schuberth
(Only in case _ruby -v_ is *NOT* working)
55 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>which ruby  # TO CHECK WHERE IT SHOULD BE
56 1 Stephan Schuberth
whereis ruby  # TO CHECK WHERE IT IS INSTALLED</pre>
57 1 Stephan Schuberth
_which_ returns like /usr/bin/ along with other directories (where ruby is expected to be), and _whereis_ returns like /usr/local/bin/ruby (thats where ruby actually lies).
58 1 Stephan Schuberth
59 1 Stephan Schuberth
Create the Link:
60 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>ln -s /usr/local/bin/ruby /usr/bin/ruby</pre>
61 1 Stephan Schuberth
Check again if it is working:
62 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>ruby -v # NOW IT MUST RETURN RUBY VERSION, ELSE SOMETHING ELSE IS BROKEN
63 1 Stephan Schuberth
cd ..</pre>
64 1 Stephan Schuberth
65 1 Stephan Schuberth
h2. RubyGems 1.4.2 
66 1 Stephan Schuberth
67 1 Stephan Schuberth
*Does not work with Gems 1.5!*
68 1 Stephan Schuberth
69 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Download
70 1 Stephan Schuberth
71 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>wget http://production.cf.rubygems.org/rubygems/rubygems-1.4.2.tgz</pre>
72 1 Stephan Schuberth
73 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Untar
74 1 Stephan Schuberth
75 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>tar zxvf rubygems-1.4.2.tgz</pre>
76 1 Stephan Schuberth
77 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Setup
78 1 Stephan Schuberth
79 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>cd rubygems-1.4.2
80 1 Stephan Schuberth
ruby setup.rb</pre>
81 1 Stephan Schuberth
82 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Check installation
83 1 Stephan Schuberth
84 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>gem -v</pre>
85 1 Stephan Schuberth
86 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. In case this does not work...
87 1 Stephan Schuberth
88 1 Stephan Schuberth
... the solution is again creating a symlink, analogical like described in the ruby section above.
89 1 Stephan Schuberth
90 1 Stephan Schuberth
h2. Passenger
91 1 Stephan Schuberth
92 1 Stephan Schuberth
h3. Regular install method
93 1 Stephan Schuberth
94 1 Stephan Schuberth
Requires gcc.
95 1 Stephan Schuberth
96 1 Stephan Schuberth
<pre>gem install passenger
97 1 Stephan Schuberth
passenger-install-apache2-module</pre>
98 1 Stephan Schuberth
99 1 Stephan Schuberth
If the second line does not work, do *whereis passenger* to find out where it is installed.
100 1 Stephan Schuberth
So you can execute it like */usr/local/bin/passenger-install-apache2-module* ...
101 1 Stephan Schuberth
102 1 Stephan Schuberth
The install process is interactive and you wil be told what to do. READ!

209 1 Stephan Schuberth

h2. Set environment to "production" 
211 1 Stephan Schuberth
212 4 Stephan Schuberth
Rails has the concept of environments to represent the stages of an application’s lifecycle: test, development, and production by default. 
213 4 Stephan Schuberth
Specify your choice with the RAILS_ENV environment variable. 
214 4 Stephan Schuberth
Production has less verbose logging and is a bit faster, testing and development environment are not needed anyway for your Redmine.
