  1. Hi,
    I am setup ruby 1.9.2 and rails 3.2 on linode server and also installed passenger, nginx. I have also modified the nginx.conf file as shown by you. But still i’m getting error

    Ruby (Rack) application could not be started
    A source file that the application requires, is missing.
    It is possible that you didn’t upload your application files correctly. Please check whether all your application files are uploaded.
    A required library may not installed. Please install all libraries that this application requires.

    Error message:
    no such file to load — /home/grainmeter/src/development/GrainMeter/config/environment

    Exception class:

    Application root:
