I'm following the guide for installing Passenger on Ubuntu, but when running

sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-passenger

it tries to install Ruby 1.9.1. I already have Ruby 2.1.0 (installed via RVM). How can I make Passenger use the existing Ruby instead of installing the new one?


Is your rvm default set to 2.1? (e.g. rvm use --default 2.1.0 )

Try installing passenger gem (which comes with an apache & nginx installer)

gem install passenger


once it is done installing it should also give you a few lines to paste into your apache config. Source: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-rails-apache-and-mysql-on-ubuntu-with-passenger
