I have a ruby script that I can run from the shell using >script/runner --environment=production “load ‘script.rb’” and it works. This script "require"s some local gems I have installed in ~/.gems. This works because I have that path set in my environment.rb which script/runner loads.
When I add this command to cron (spelling out /home/user/site.com/script/runner too), it doesn’t work because it can’t find the local gems.
So, I tried unpacking the gems to /vendor/gems and using include Modulename instead. This gives me a different error.
Someone must have tried this before, how does it work?
Adding this before the runner command works:
export GEM_HOME="$HOME/.gems";export GEM_PATH="$GEM_HOME:/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8";export PATH="$HOME/.gems/bin:$PATH";
