How do I upgrade to 2.0 RC 2?
Via a gem
Please download the 2.0 RC 2 gem, then install it with the command:
gem install passenger-1.9.1.gem
Please don’t forget to copy & paste the Apache config snippet that the installer gives you.
Via a native Linux package
Neil Wilson from Brightbox has kindly provided an Ubuntu 8.04 package for Phusion Passenger. The package is available from the Brightbox repository which you can find at:
Add the following line to the Third Party Software Sources:
deb http://apt.brightbox.net hardy main
(The simplest way to do that is to create a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ containing the deb anstruction, and then run ‘apt-get update‘).
Once you’ve done this then you can install Phusion Passenger by running:
apt-get install libapache2-mod-passenger
