Install Ruby on Rails in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Here is step by step instruction on how to set up ruby on rails in ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Installing Ruby using RVM:

First you have  to install  some dependencies for Ruby.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git-core curl zlib1g-dev build-essential libssl-dev libreadline-dev libyaml-dev libsqlite3-dev sqlite3 libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev

Now install ruby with RVM using those commends:

sudo apt-get install libgdbm-dev libncurses5-dev automake libtool bison libffi-dev
curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable
source ~/.rvm/scripts/rvm
echo "source ~/.rvm/scripts/rvm" >> ~/.bashrc
rvm install 2.1.1
rvm use 2.1.1 --default
ruby -v

Installing Rails:

Rails comes with so many dependencies like NodeJS

To install NodeJS, we’re going to add it using a PPA repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nodejs

Now run for install rails:

gem install rails
rails -v
# Rails 4.1.0

Setting Up MySQL:

You can install MySQL server and client from the packages in the Ubuntu repository.

sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client libmysqlclient-dev

Setting Up PostgreSQL:

For PostgreSQL, you need to add a new repository to easily install a recent version of Postgres 9.3.

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ precise-pgdg main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list"
wget --quiet -O - http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ACCC4CF8.asc | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install postgresql-common
sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.3 libpq-dev

For postgres you need to set up a user.

sudo -u postgres createuser chris -s
# If you would like to set a password for the user, you can do the following
sudo -u postgres psql
postgres=# \password salayhin

Test your settings for new install:

#### If you want to use MySQL
rails new new_app -d mysql

#### If you want to use Postgres
rails new new_app -d postgresql

# Move into the application directory
cd new_app

# If you setup MySQL or Postgres with a username/password, modify the
# config/database.yml file to contain the username/password that you specified

# Create the database
rake db:create

rails server

All done. Now visit http://localhost:3000 to view your new application.

Enjoy. Happy Coding 🙂
