Ruby is a programming language known for its easy to use Ruby on Rails framework.
We provide different releases and apply security updates on a regular basis. Currently, these Ruby versions are available: 2.3, 2.4, and 2.5
If you don’t select a certain version, our default will be used. We decided to default to version 2.5, which is considered to be stable by the developers.
Show available versions¶
uberspace tools version list ruby to show all selectable versions:
[eliza@dolittle ~]$ uberspace tools version list ruby - 2.3 - 2.4 - 2.5 [eliza@dolittle ~]$
You can select the Ruby version with
uberspace tools version use ruby <version>. You can choose between release branches:
[eliza@dolittle ~]$ uberspace tools version use ruby 2.3 Selected ruby version 2.3 The new configuration is adapted immediately. Patch updates will be applied automatically. [eliza@dolittle ~]$
[eliza@dolittle ~]$ uberspace tools version use ruby 2.4 Selected ruby version 2.4 The new configuration is adapted immediately. Patch updates will be applied automatically. [eliza@dolittle ~]$
You can check the selected version by executing
uberspace tools version show ruby on the command line:
[eliza@dolittle ~]$ uberspace tools version show ruby Using 'ruby' version: 2.5 [eliza@dolittle ~]$
We update all versions on a regular basis. Once the support reaches its end of life (eol), the branch is no longer supported and will be removed from our servers.

Connection to webserver¶
In order to make your Ruby application accessable from the outside, you need to connect it to the webserver. This is done using a proxy
RewriteRule to forward requests to the application’s network port. For example, if your application is listening on port 61624 and you want it to be accessable at
https://<user>.uber.space/ruby/, place an .htaccess file looking like this in your DocumentRoot:
RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^ruby/(.*) http://localhost:61624/$1 [P]
Apache 2.4 will add the DirectoryIndex (index.html) to all requests without a folder or file name. To avoid this, add
DirectoryIndex disabled to your .htaccess
