passenger_apache2 with application_ruby and RVM


#1

Hi Chefs,

I’m trying to install a custom rails application with chef, using
application_ruby cookbook with passenger_apache2 sub-resource and chef-rvm
(rvm) cookbook.

I’m using chef-zero (local_mode true) to test it, in order to avoid any
chef-solo impact and I’m currently using chef-11.8.2 omnibus installation
on CentOS6.5_x64.

By manually applying https://github.com/poise/application_ruby/pull/48
I managed to achieve the whole installation without using rvm, but in this
way installation is done by embedded (omnibus) ruby and I would like to
avoid it in order to be able to control ruby version my application will
run with.

Unfortunately I cannot manage the whole installation working with rvm (even
using bleeding edge version from master).

This is my wrapper recipe:


These are involved attributes:

This is the error running with params-only hash to pass attribute to
passenger_apache2:

This is the errror with explicit override of root_path (third run on the
same VM instance):
override[‘passenger’][‘root_path’] = '/usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.1.0’

This is the errror with explicit override of root_path (first run on new VM
instance):


Again second run (after re-login to set env variable after rvm install)
uses rvm:

I only found this thread googling around:
http://lists.opscode.com/sympa/arc/chef/2013-03/msg00210.html
and would like to know if anyboby else has been able to manage such a
scenario.

Any help would be very appreciated :slight_smile:

I too cannot install rvm with rvm cookbook, or system,

I write my own custom code to install rvm in user code.

See my own rvm recipe )

Hope this help. This worked in production some months.

I cannot share all cookbook now.

I hope in future do it, but i need some refactoring )

See joshua timberman cookbook to setup redmine too (google it).
