Installing RVM + Ruby + Rails + Passenger + nginx on CentOS

I recently had to install all of this ^ on a CentOS machine. I found myself jumping all over the place trying to figure it out. This isn't the first time I've had to do this, and it probably won't be the last time, so I decided to document my journey!

This is not a copy-and-paste script.

Go through it, read the comments, and visit 'Sources' links at the bottom of this post to make sure you understand what's going on.

# Steps to install RVM + Ruby 1.9.2 + Rails + nginx + Passenger on CentOS (tested on v5.5)

# Install git and curl, if not already installed
sudo yum install git
sudo yum install curl


# Create the rvm group and add any users who will be using rvm to the group
sudo su -
groupadd rvm

# Start by adding the root user (required to install RVM)
usermod -a

    The RVM system-wide installation at line 18 no longer works!

    See link to stackoverflow.com

    just use sudo with the normal install command and it’ll install system wide. eg:

    sudo bash < <(curl -s link to rvm.beginrescueend.com)

    per. link to rvm.beginrescueend.com

    This line:

    start-stop-daemon –start –quiet –pidfile /opt/nginx/logs/$NAME.pid \

    Is going to cause problems on a CentOS distro.

    The rvmsudo line failed for me on Centos 6.4. (command not found error returned by rvmsudo).

    I had to put it into quotes to get it to work:-

    rvmsudo `which passenger-install-nginx-module`
