Managing your gems using bundler

Using the bundler to satifsy your gem dependencies provides a quick and easy way to get your rails application setup on the web server.

To get started, upload your application to the web server.  A rails deployment has already been created using the  same name as your domain name. 

You can upload your website with FTP, SCP, or use command line tools like git, svn etc.

SSH to the server to run the bundle command.  Once connected..

Change directory to your rails application.

# cd

Run the bundle install

# bundle install --deployment

The deployment flag will install the gems into your applications vendor directory allowing you to maintain your own gems.

If you receive errors regarding the use of gcc or make, contact our support staff and they can grant you access to compilers.
