Linux Cloud Hosting with ASPHostPortal.com :: How To Install Rails, Apache, and MySQL on Ubuntu with Passenger

Intro


Installing Ruby on Rails and MySQL on an apache virtual private server is the first step toward getting Ruby applications live and online. Three useful installers make the task of building this server easier than ever before.

Setup

This tutorial requires you to have a  server up and running. Additionally, the rails ready script needs to be performed by a user with sudo privileges. If you don’t have a user like that on your server, you can check out how to do that in steps 3 and 4 of this tutorial.

Step One—Install Rails Ready


Once you are logged in on your virtual server with your user with root privileges, type in the command to install Rails Ready:

wget --no-check-certificate https://raw.github.com/joshfng/railsready/master/railsready.sh && bash railsready.sh

Rails Ready can be installed either from the source or with RVM, the Ruby Version Manager. I would recommend using RVM—it’s an easy installation and will later let you to switch between multiple versions of Ruby if needed.

Cloud Linux Hosting :: How To Install Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) stack On CentOS 6

3

LAMP stack is a group of open source software used to get web servers up and running. The acronym stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. Since the server is already running CentOS, the linux part is taken care of. Here is how to install the rest.

Set Up

The steps in this tutorial require the user on the virtual private server to have root privileges. You can see how to set that up in the Initial Server Setup Tutorial in steps 3 and 4.

Step One—Install Apache


Apache is a free open source software which runs over 50% of the world’s web servers.

To install apache, open terminal and type in this command:

sudo yum install httpd

Once it installs, you can start apache running on your VPS:

sudo service httpd start

That’s it. To check if Apache is installed, direct your browser to your server’s IP address (eg. http://12.34.56.789). The page should display the words “It works!” like this.

How to find your Server’s IP address


You can run the following command to reveal your server’s IP address.

ifconfig eth0 | grep inet | awk '{ print $2 }'

 

Step Two—Install MySQL


MySQL is a powerful database management system used for organizing and retrieving data on a virtual server

To install MySQL, open terminal and type in these commands:

sudo yum install mysql-server
sudo service mysqld start

During the installation, MySQL will ask you for your permission twice. After you say Yes to both, MySQL will install.

Once it is done installing, you can set a root MySQL password:

sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

The prompt will ask you for your current root password.

Since you just installed MySQL, you most likely won’t have one, so leave it blank by pressing enter.

Enter current password for root (enter for none): 
OK, successfully used password, moving on...

Then the prompt will ask you if you want to set a root password. Go ahead and choose Y and follow the instructions.

CentOS automates the process of setting up MySQL, asking you a series of yes or no questions.

It’s easiest just to say Yes to all the options. At the end, MySQL will reload and implement the new changes.

By default, a MySQL installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone
to log into MySQL without having to have a user account created for
them.  This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation
go a bit smoother.  You should remove them before moving into a
production environment.

Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] y                                            
 ... Success!

Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from 'localhost'.  This
ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network.

Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] y
... Success!

By default, MySQL comes with a database named 'test' that anyone can
access.  This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed
before moving into a production environment.

Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y
 - Dropping test database...
 ... Success!
 - Removing privileges on test database...
 ... Success!

Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far
will take effect immediately.

Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] y
 ... Success!

Cleaning up...

All done!  If you've completed all of the above steps, your MySQL
installation should now be secure.

Thanks for using MySQL!

Linux Cloud Hosting – ASPHostPortal.com :: How To Setup a Rails 4 App With Apache and Passenger on CentOS 6

1

When the user creates a droplet from a vanilla image (in our case: CentOS 6.4 x64), additional system administration work is needed before a Ruby on Rails application can be run and become available online. This tutorial provides the necessary steps to make that happen.

In order to go through this tutorial, a virtual server with at least 1 GB of RAM is a minimum requirement, because Passenger commands in step #3 are memory intensive.

Also, the tutorial assumes that the user has root access to the VPS (either as a user with root privileges or as the system root).

This tutorial is not intended for production node setup. It involves development library installation and ad hoc compilation on the machine, which is not a good practice when you’re setting up a production environment.”

Step One – Apache Setup

It all starts with the web server and the simplest way to install Apache is to pull it from the yum repository:

yum install httpd

After the installation is done, the system should be configured to automatically run Apache on system boot:

chkconfig httpd on

Without this setting, the httpd service needs to be started manually each time the droplet is rebooted.

The next step is to configure Apache to expect incoming requests by editing its configuration file:

nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

In the editor, near the bottom, locate and uncomment the line containing: NameVirtualHost *:80

Save and exit the editor. Apache is ready to be started now:

service httpd start

Voilà! Accessing droplet’s IP address in a web browser will show Apache’s welcome page.

 Step Two – Ruby 2.0 and Rails 4.0 Setup

Setting up Apache was an easy stroll. It’s even simpler to setup Ruby, followed by Rails.

The quickest way is to use Ruby Version Manager (RVM) to maintain multiple Ruby environments on the machine. The latest stable version of RVM is downloaded and installed like this:

curl -L get.rvm.io | bash -s stable

If RVM is supposed to be used by all users, there is a shell script available for the job:

source /etc/profile.d/rvm.sh Read more »
