Adding Gems and Plugins To A Shared Hosting Account?


#1

Hi, I have a hosting account with godaddy.com and I guess after asking
about RoR, it’s now installed on both the Deluxe and Premium shared
plans. Now, it seems that I don’t have command line access (i.e ssh).
Thus, I was wondering, how does one check to see what gems are
installed and how can I add other gems? Is it possible to add gems
and plugins to the local project and simply upload to the server?
Well, I must go and thanks in advance.

Pretty sure you’ll need command line access to do this yourself, or
you can (presumably) email the support guys at godaddy.com to get them
to do it for you.

If the gem doesn’t compile c code, you just can locate the ruby files of
the
gems and put them manually in yu r lib folder and add the dependencies
in
enironment.rb. (the exists even a rake
taskhttp://nubyonrails.com/articles/2005/12/22/freeze-other-gems-to-rails-lib-directoryto
freeze gems into your app exactly for this purpose, (but it did not
work
on windows when I last tried, see my comments there)
