I am having a problem with starting a Ruby On Rails application.

When I type

mtr start <application_name>

It will take a long time and fail with the following message:

Error Executing Command.

But the status of the application will show as "running", only that I will immediately get a HTTP 502 error when trying to access it.

The problem was a faulty gem. Doing:

perl ~/

Identified the culprit and after resintalling it worked fine.
