I am deploying a Rails application ( Project Fedena ) to a VPS at Digital Ocean.
I can use either of
mongrel_rails start and
ruby script/server to launch my app with no problem. It binds to port :3000 and I can use the application as desired.
The problem is with Phusion Passenger, I have installed the gem
gem install passenger however, when I run
passenger start from my rails app root, there's a permissions issue, which doesn't seem to be the case with Mongrel or Webrick:
=============== Phusion Passenger Standalone web server started =============== PID file: /root/fedena/tmp/pids/passenger.80.pid Log file: /root/fedena/log/passenger.80.log Environment: production Accessible via: http://0.0.0.0:3000/ You can stop Phusion Passenger Standalone by pressing Ctrl-C.

There is only one user (0) on this machine that owns all the directories. I've performed a recursive chmod on the directory to 777, 775, 755.
