Ruby is Still Shining!

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the discussion about the Ruby and Passenger updates. As 2014 rolls on, we’re always adjusting and reconsidering our options. Ruby and Passenger continue to be a very appealing project and one that will stay on our to-do list. With that in mind, our research has led us to a new implementation idea for Ruby and Passenger. This new theory would deliver Ruby and Passenger in a fast and efficient manner, but will affect the delivery date that we were originally targeting.

As with all software projects this information is subject to change. Please stay tuned to the cPanel Blog as well as the EasyApache Forums for continuing updates concerning our current projects and work!

To learn more about our implementation of Ruby and Passenger, please read our original Ruby and Passenger blog post from August 2013.

        is there any news about upgrade to RoR 4?


        • Scott

          Hi Branko,

          cPanel & WHM has started a new project which will introduce an RPM Apache stack as well as multiple PHP support. The framework created during those projects will be our launching point for providing Ruby on Rails in the future. Thank you for you question. You can follow the progress of the multiple PHP project at this feature request:

            so what is it’s status? Because there is nothing said about RoR…


          • Any updates? Ruby 2 and/or Rails 4?

  • Eli Harrison

    Thanks for the update, I’m excited to see how it turns out!

  • DrMcNasty

    God that would be great. It would be so nice to be able to install a ruby on rails app on cpanel based servers!!

  • Wesley Wang

    so would that include a rails 4 update?

    • Scott

      Hi Wesley,

      Yes, we are currently targeting Rails 4.
