Hi, thanks for writing this guide. However, I got to executing the rails server and and got the following error:
FATAL: role "myapp" does not exist
You need to change the config/database.yml username to match your database's username and password.
just found some problems with rbenv, may be caused by my homebrew was not the latest version, it say i have rbenv install, but i got empty folders under ~/.rbenv, so i go to https://github.com/sstephen... to clone it. and rbenv command works, then i found install comment missing, so i clone it by using : git clone https://github.com/sstephen... ~/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build , then everything works fine. BTW, i found some one says rbenv should be under ./.rbenv/shims, but i found it still use ~/.rbenv/bin, so just check that you cloned from github :)
thank you so much man...it worked perfectly...although the cat command wasn't required...another little info...you should copy the public key not the private key...the one that starts with ssh-rsa..after generating the ssh key you can easily copy it onto your clipboard by typing:
pbcopy < ~/ .ssh/id_rsa.pub
and paste it in github!!
Can you tell me how to fix that? I cannot use posgresql database. Here is the error I get ->
could not connect to server: No such file or directory Is the server running locally and accepting connections on Unix domain socket "/tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432"?
Try specifying the "host: 127.0.0.1" option so it doesn't try to connect through the socket.
Change your config/database.yml to look like this:
Rename the database to whatever you want to call your app's database and also make sure to change your postgres username to your username. And last, but not least, make sure postgres is running.
I got this error ->
could not connect to server: Connection refused Is the server running on host "127.0.0.1" and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?
Any idea to fix ,Sir?
Sounds like you don't have postgres running. Follow the steps in the postgres section again to make sure you got them (especially the launchctl one.)
I'm having a little trouble with getting rbenv configured. I have followed all of the commands, but when i try to run rbenv install 2.1.2, I'm getting install command not found.
MacBook-Pro:~ munkie$ rbenv
MacBook-Pro:~ munkie$ rbenv install 2.1.2
rbenv: no such command `install'
when I run:
`gem install rails`
I got this error:
ERROR: Could not find a valid gem 'rails' (>= 0), here is why:
What should I do now?
I had received an issue with SSL breaking the ruby build. All I had to do was use brew to uninstall SSL and reinstall the latest version.
Error: The Ruby openssl extension was not compiled. Missing the OpenSSL lib?
> brew uninstall openssl
> brew update
> brew install openssl
Great article, thanks!
I get a "No such file or directory" when using cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
I was prompted to add the SSH to a file, (not pictured in the tutorial steps) which I tried doing several times with different naming schemes, but couldn't get it to work. Finally I just re-ran the commands and hit 'enter' at the ask-for-filename step, and from there following the tutorial commands verbatim worked for me.
So if you tried to add it to a different file, don't - just go with the defaults. =)
Ran into the following Error:
The `brew link` step did not complete successfully
The formula built, but is not symlinked into /usr/local
Could not symlink include/mysql
/usr/local/include is not writable.
Any comments or help on this would be most appreciated!
Your problem is:
/usr/local/include is not writable.
I think that should be owned by your user. Mine is
drwxr-xr-x 232 chris admin 7888 Sep 26 14:24 include
I imagine fixing permissions and reinstalling mysql will do the trick.
I'm stuck on the final steps of the installation, I went to create a new rails app. Results are below. I clicked (yes) for everything after the conflict below, and then db:create after
Pears-MacBook-Pro:~ Pear$ rails new tryout -d postgresql
Overwrite /Users/Pear/tryout/Gemfile? (enter "h" for help) [Ynaqdh]
There was also
Pears-MacBook-Pro:orange Pear$ rake db:create
Could not find gem 'pg (>= 0) ruby' in the gems available on this machine.
Run `bundle install` to install missing gems.
I used homebrew and i'm on mavericks 10.9, i'm trying to find a way to add the rvm, and i've used stack overflow beforehand.
thinknig about just uninstalling everything and resetting everything up if I can't find an answer as i've been working on this for the last few hours.
Any help would be appreciated.
You need to run 'bundle install' as it mentioned there. You set up a new Rails app with a different database. That means you've got a new database adapter gem to use but haven't installed it yet. bundle install will do that for you.
thanks for the repy chris, I should've mentioned that I did try bundle install also yesterday(though, with sudo), and the subsequent steps of using gem install pg '0.17.1', but to no avail. this is why i posted up thoughts. i'm still a new user to the mac environment and rails so i'm sort of learning on the fly.

I think you may need to install postgres because it can't find libpq in your logs there: Can't find the PostgreSQL client library (libpq)
brew install postgresql
Also with this set up, you should never have to use the sudo command. If you use it, you're likely to cause permissions problems where files are owned by root and not your user. It causes a chain effect where everything starts to require sudo which is bad. Basically don't ever run sudo and if you run into problems, there's a different problem which can be fixed without sudo. :)
eeek, should i have done the > bundle install --path vendor/bundle line instead? and postgresql was already installed also, as noted below.
Warning: postgresql-9.3.5_1 already installed
You should just be able to do bundle install without any options and it should work.
Now that I'm looking at your logs again, it looks like you installed Postgres.app so it isn't looking at homebrew's Postgres. I'm sure that's the problem. One thing you can try is to uninstall Postgres.app and see if it gets resolved.
I have been using homebrew the whole time. I've gone through some of those stack overflow posts yesterday and again just now. But nothing yet. ARGH. thank you for your help though.
Always something! It looks like you've got something configured to point to that directory so maybe you set an environment variable while following one of those posts. That's definitely possible. You might need to just unset some environment variables then.
One thing to keep in mind, at least with OSX, if you can install it with Homebrew, definitely do that. It's easily the best way to install things and you rarely will have trouble with it.
I've never used postgresql in a rails app. I'm getting errors, here is a gist:https://gist.github.com/ant...
I did the github stuff. never was shown a ssh keycode or whatever.
heres the stuff
jasons-MacBook-Pro:~ prince$ ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "[email protected]"
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/Users/prince/.ssh/id_rsa): desktop
desktop already exists.
Overwrite (y/n)? n
When you type "desktop" it thinks you want to use that as the filename. You want to type a full folder and filename. It suggests (and I do too) saving it to /Users/prince/.ssh folder with the name of id_rsa. That's the default and you can go with that because SSH will check there automatically to find keys. If you don't save it there, then you will need to specify where your key is every time you use SSH.
Haha! Actually OSX comes with an older version of Ruby. We use that to install Homebrew so we can make installing a ruby version manager easily.
Hi I got this message after I ran: gem install rails -v 4.2.1
Fetching: i18n-0.7.0.gem (100%)
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::FilePermissionError)
You don't have write permissions for the /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0 directory.
can you tell me what I need to do?
This is basically saying that you're not using the rbenv version of Ruby and you're using system Ruby which you don't want to do.
Try restarting your terminal and double check your ran all the commands. The output you should get from the "which ruby" is something like this "/Users/chris/.rbenv/shims/ruby" when it is set up correctly.
I have the same problem , but i´m using rbenv , :( ruby -v put 2.2.2 but when i run bundle install
Bundler::GemspecError: Could not read gem at /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0/cache/json-1.8.1.gem. It may be corrupted.
An error occurred while installing json (1.8.1), and Bundler cannot continue.
Make sure that `gem install json -v '1.8.1'` succeeds before bundling.
i tried "which ruby" and the result was /Users/Carlos/.rbenv/shims/ruby
hi, i went through these instructions everything worked, then i got to the end and discovered that the program that i am attempting to run is dependant on ruby 1.8.7 instead of 2.2.2. How would I uninstall v 2.2.2?
Don't worry about uninstalling it because you might want to use 2.2.2 in the future. You installed a version manager so you can have multiple copies at once.
Just do this to install 1.8.7:
rbenv install 1.8.7
rbenv global 1.8.7
Hey, thanks, i had to install: brew tap homebrew/dupes ; brew install apple-gcc42
version manager to be able it to install 1.8.7-2012.02 but it worked.
I am getting the below error..rake db:create
