Switchtower setup hangs


#1

Hi!

I’ve been having a problem with switchtower. It hangs for several
minutes and then spits out errors when I try to execute the setup
recipe. Any ideas?

Robs-iBook:~/Sites/mysite rob$ rake remote_exec ACTION=setup

loading configuration /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/switchtower-0.9.0/

Does anyone know if this is my servers fault, or something with
Switchtower?

I can connect to my server using SSH just fine.

Any hints?

What does Switchtower usually do? Ask for the password after the
“servers: []” line?

Thanks!
Rob

Yes.

Sorry for the obvious question, but your real url is not mysite.com,
right?

I can’t say anything else but I installed switchtower on my powerbook
yesterday and everything worked pretty well.

No, just put that there for anonymity

I just changed my servers to their respective IP address but that
doesn’t help either, same problem.

This helped though:

I compiled Ruby 1.8.3 from source, and now it works :slight_smile:

Thanks,
