Once more into the Ruby update breach, my friends!

· · Web · 2 · 0 · 1

Ooh it's compiling! I guess the failure wasn't with the Ruby version but that I had to compile as root.

@tobi Evidently! On my own system I'm explicitly told not to do that. In the original Mastodon installation docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/in asset precompilation is done as the mastodon user, but when I followed Hometown upgrade instillation github.com/hometown-fork/homet trying to run the precompile as mastodon gave me a permission denied error, while compiling as root worked.

@tobi narrator's voice: It was, in fact, not supposed to be precompiled from root

@tobi you were the voice of prophecy!! Guess who had to do a bunch of chown commands for files that had root ownership and had to be changed back to mastodon for anything to work 🙃

@nerd everyone should heed my words where tech is concerned (nobody should heed my words)
