Hey Chris, thanks for providing this walkthrough, it's been mostly a breeze. One thing I'm stuck on however is generating the database. When I run RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake db:create in the /home/deploy/myapp/current directory, substituting "myapp" for the actual name of my app or course, the vps tells me ruby 2.1.1 is not installed, so I install it, then it wants me to bundle install, and so I do, and finally I'm stuck with "Gem::Ext::BuildError: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension." type errors as the gems fail to compile. Where did I go wrong? I'd be happy to supply much more insight into this issue, up to and including access to the vps! thanks in advance.
