How to update Rails version on shared hosting server
I have shared hosting server on bigrock.com and there is Ruby installed version 1.9 but it supports Rails 3 version and I am learning Rails 4.0.1. I talked with server support but got no answer.
So question is is there any way I can deploy Rails 4 application on my server or I will switch some other server.
As I told I am learner and can't afford money. Big rock is cheapest server I have seen. Yes I know there is Heroku but there are too many limitations for free user and for premiere user it is costly.
You can use Rails 4 if your ruby version is 1.9.3+
Rails Documentation says
Ruby 2.0 preferred; 1.9.3+ required
Include rails version in your Gemfile.
gem 'rails', '4.0.1'
Rails 4 prefers Ruby 2.0
The best way is install your own ruby 2 by Ruby Version Manager (RVM) if you can
\curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable rvm install 2
An other way is buy a cheap VPS like 15$/year or $5/month
