RubyGems is a package manager for the Ruby programming language. It provides a self-contained format in which developers can distribute Ruby programs and libraries.

For more information on RubyGems, read the RubyGems documentation.

Ruby Gem Installer

To create a Ruby application, perform the following steps:

  1. Ask your hosting provider to install Ruby on your system via the following EasyApache 4 packages:
    • The ea-apache24-mod_env module.
    • The ea-ruby24-ruby-devel module.
  2. Create a Ruby application on your server. For an example of how to do this, read our How to Create Ruby Web Applications documentation.
  3. Use cPanel’s Application Manager interface (cPanel » Home » Software » Application Manager) to register the application.

Installed Ruby Gems

The Installed Ruby Gem(s) table lists all of the Ruby Gems that exist on your server.

For each installed Ruby Gem, the table displays the following information:

  • Actions — You can perform the following actions for each Ruby Gem:
    • Update — Update the Ruby Gem.
