Perfect! Thanks for the help.
Well, I tried the steps below from the link:
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
3) Using your favorite SSH client connect to your site.
4) at the prompt type:
cp /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/cache/sources-0.0.1.gem ./
gem install sources-0.0.1.gem
gem update -y
This will update rails to the latest version and install it to your
local gem directory.
The output of gem update -y was only a message that no gems were
updated. (Actually it was something like  gems updated.)
I tried to do gem install rails, and it ended up installing a local
copy of rails 1.2.0.
1. I tried updating by following the above steps but failed.. there was
no file named sources-0.0.1.gem I just downloaded it from rubyforge and
2. tried: "gem update -y" but there were many errors on rails
3. but "gem install rails" got rails 2.0.2 installed without any
issues.. so far so good. got to test it by using a rail app to make sure
hope this helps..
I was able to install rails 2.0.2 to my local directory also and was
able to successfully create a rails 2.0.2 project. HOWEVER, I get the
"Rails application failed to start properly" when I test out my
application. Does anybody know why this is? Is it because the server
can't handle rails 2.0.2 requests?
BTW, I can get a rails 1.2.6 project working fine on bluehost by
changing the permissions in the public directory. However like i said,
no luck with rails 2.0.2.
