Get the source
It's time to download Diaspora! As your diaspora user run:
cd ~ git clone git://github.com/diaspora/diaspora.git cd diaspora
Don't miss the cd diaspora, all coming commands expect to be run from that directory!
cp config/database.yml.example config/database.yml cp config/diaspora.yml.example config/diaspora.yml
It's time to install the Ruby libraries required by Diaspora:
gem install bundler bin/bundle install
This takes quite a while. You should get a green success message when it's finished, if that's not the case you should seek for help on the mailing list or the IRC channel. You can speed it up a bit adding -jn to the command, where n is 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.
Double check your config/database.yml looks right and run:
bin/rake db:create db:schema:load
