I’m trying to install ruby on rails to a host server that I don’t have
root access to. The server already has ruby.
I’ve followed the info on these two pages for installing rubygems in a
non-root user directory:
rubygems appears to be installed correctly but when I do “gem install
rails” I get this error:
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)
Permission denied - connect(2)(Errno::EACCES)
I’ve changed my $PATH to include the gem installation dir, I have my
$RUBYLIB set to /home/geminstall/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8, and have set
the $GEM_HOME path to my gem repository.
is it possible to be completely unable to install ROR on a hosting
company server because of lack of permissions? or am I missing
