This is what I have so far. There are some bits I haven't worked out and maybe check over the order of the install.


The Dreamhost VPS is Ubuntu/Precise without root access. If you reference this document, it will help to highlight the specific needs of this platform. https://wiki.diasporafoundation.org/Installation/Ubuntu/Precise

Use a prompt that helps you locate where you are [server]$ PS1='$(hostname):$(pwd) > '

Grab Diaspora for later... [server]:/home/[user directory] > git clone -b master https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora.git


[server]:/home/[user directory] > ruby --version ruby 1.8.7 (2011-06-30 patchlevel 352) [x86_64-linux] You need Ruby 2.3 for Diaspora

[server]:/home/[user directory] > gem install bundler [server]:/home/[user directory] > wget http://download.redis.io/releases/redis-3.2.9.tar.gz [server]:/home/[user directory] > tar -zxvf redis-3.2.9.tar.gz [server]:/home/[user directory] > cd redis-3.2.9 [server]:/home/[user directory]/redis-3.2.9 > cd src; make PREFIX=$HOME/redis [server]:/home/[user directory]/redis-3.2.9/src > make test [server]:/home/[user directory]/redis-3.2.9/src > make PREFIX=$HOME/redis install

[server]:/home/[user directory]/redis-3.2.9/src > cd ~

create file .gemrc and add the following line so that gem installs are directed to the user directory. gem: --user-install

[server]:/home/[user directory] > curl -L https://s.diaspora.software/1t | bash Add the following line to the ~/.bashrc file. -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" && source "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm"


[server]:/home/[user directory] > gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3

[server]:/home/[user directory] > curl -L https://s.diaspora.software/1t | bash

You need this extra stuff for RVM

wget https://fossies.org/linux/misc/gmp-6.1.2.tar.gz tar xzf gmp-6.1.2.tar.gz cd gmp-6.1.2 cd gmp-6.1.2 ./configure --prefix=${HOME}/gmp/6.1.2 make make install

GMP_DIR="${HOME}/gmp/6.1.0"~/.bash_profile export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${GMP_DIR}/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH export LIBRARY_PATH=${GMP_DIR}/lib64:$LIBRARY_PATH export CPATH=${GMP_DIR}/include:$CPATH

Check Ruby... [server]:/home/[user directory] > rvm --version rvm 1.29.1 (latest) by Michal Papis, Piotr Kuczynski, Wayne E. Seguin [1]

Update Ruby [server]:/home/[user directory] > rvm autolibs disable [server]:/home/[user directory] > rvm install 2.3

Set the default [server]:/home/[user directory] > rvm use 2.3 --default Using /home/[user directory]/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.3.3

[server]:/home/[user directory] > cd diaspora on change directory the following it triggered ruby-2.3.3 - #gemset created /home/[user directory]/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.3.3@diaspora ruby-2.3.3 - #generating diaspora wrappers..........

Edit the database and diaspora yml files

Set up the Dreamhost domain Web directory: diaspora/public Check Passenger and RVM RVM: /home/[user directory]/.rvm/wrappers/default/ruby You must use this path as the other path has illegal characters

Setup databases diaspora_development diaspora_production diaspora_test diaspora_integration1 diaspora_integration2 Bundle It's time to install the Ruby libraries required by diaspora*: gem install bundler RAILS_ENV=production bin/bundle install --jobs $(nproc) --deployment --without test development --with mysql This takes quite a while. When it's finished, you should see a message similar to: Bundle complete! 137 Gemfile dependencies, 259 gems now installed. If that's not the case, you should seek for help on the mailing list or the IRC channel. The --jobs $(nproc) flag speeds things a bit since it enables parallel downloading. nproc shows the number of CPU cores you have available. Running the manual gem install command shown in the error message can sometimes show a clearer error message if the bundle command fails. Database setup Double check your config/database.yml looks right and run: RAILS_ENV=production bin/rake db:create db:schema:load

Precompile assets v Start diaspora* It's time to start diaspora*: ./script/server

Doesn’t work here... [server]:/home/[user directory]/diaspora > gem install reload [server]:/home/[user directory]/diaspora > gem install setup [server]:/home/[user directory]/diaspora > gem install unicorn

Switched the server to Ngnix


Now i have ti working... What I have done is copy redis-integration1.conf to redis-integration.conf edit the file then use the following start commend.

[server]:/home/[user directory] > ~/redis/bin/redis-server ~/diaspora/redis-integration.conf

I think the about should be in ./script/server.

Didn't spot anything yet that made the conventions for using the redis...conf file.
