I volunteer for a non-profit with a Ruby on Rails app and they recently lost their web developer. I have done a lot of programming from Perl to PHP and ASP, but never RoR. I’ve become somewhat familiar and been able to track down and make some cosmetic changes to some of the apps web pages, but I wanted to make sure what versions I’m dealing with and having a problem finding the Rails version. I found some instruction on how to determine and see we have ruby 1.9.3, but there is no rails command and not on the gems list, see below. How do I find my rails version?
root@app01:~/www# ruby -v
ruby 1.9.3p392 (2013-02-22 revision 39386) [x86_64-linux]
root@app01:~/www# rails -v
rbenv: rails: command not found
The `rails’ command exists in these Ruby versions:
root@app01:~/www# gem list
*** LOCAL GEMS ***
minitest (4.7.5, 2.5.1)
This install is on a Ubuntu VPS using the nginx web server, I would like to get a copy of the app running on a local Ubuntu server I have in my office, but I am only running Apache on it now and would like to possibly run the app on Apache versus installing nginx. Hopefully I can do that once I have all my version information, but I’m also reading several different ways to install Rails, and what is passenger? The service to start nginx on the VPS is nginx-passenger. Any advice on the best way for me to go about getting my own copy of the app running would be appreciated. I have a copy of its MySQL db copied and loaded already, just need to get the app working.
Thanks for any help!
