Nginx – Rails Nginx Passenger Cannot checkout session because a spawning error occurred

bundlercapistranonginxpassengerruby-on-rails-3

I have a Rails 3.2.14 app that deploys and operates fine on a production server. I'm working on deploying it to another server to test changes before I push out to production. I'm running the latest version of passenger/nginx and using Capistrano 2.12.0 with Ruby 1.9.3-p194 due to this being a legacy app and I'm trying to mimic the environment.

I can deploy the app without a problem, but it won't spawn passenger and start up the app.

Here's one of the errors I get in /var/log/nginx/error.log

I noticed an error about bundler but I did install the bundler gem, and here's my output running as deploy user or root user:

bundle -v
Bundler version 1.1.4

Here's the specific error log file for passenger

Here's my capistrano deploy.rb in case it helps (note, working on production server, but when I change the IP to the staging server it deploys but doesn't run rake tasks or whenever gem to set crontab):

require "bundler/capistrano"
set :whenever_command, "bundle exec whenever"
require "whenever/capistrano"

server "72.14.181.01", :web, :app, :db, primary: true

set :application, "appname"
set :user, "deploy"
set :deploy_to, "/home/#{user}/#{application}"
#set :deploy_via, :remote_cache
set :use_sudo, false
set :rails_env, "production"


set :scm, "git"
set :repository, "git@github.com:appguy/#{application}.git"
set :branch, "master"


default_run_options[:pty] = true
ssh_options[:forward_agent] = true

after "deploy", "deploy:cleanup" # keep only the last 5 releases
after "deploy:update", "gps_listener:restart"

namespace :deploy do
  task :start do ; end
  task :stop do ; end
  task :restart, :roles => :app, :except => { :no_release => true } do
    run "#{try_sudo} touch #{File.join(current_path,'tmp','restart.txt')}"
  end
  desc "reload the database with seed data"
  task :seed do
    run "cd #{current_path}; bundle exec rake db:seed RAILS_ENV=#{rails_env}"
  end
end

namespace :gps_listener do
  task :start do
    run "#{sudo} start app-gps"
  end

  task :stop do
    run "#{sudo} stop app-gps"
  end

  task :restart do
    run "#{sudo} stop app-gps && sleep 1 && #{sudo} start app-gps"
  end
end

task :after_update_code do
  run "ln -nfs #{deploy_to}/shared/config/database.yml #{release_path}/config/database.yml"
  run "cd #{current_path}; RAILS_ENV=#{rails_env} bundle exec rake gps:listen"
end

I'll admit, it's been a long time (1-2 years) since I've had to bootstrap a new server so recreating this legacy app with new versions of passenger/nginx is proving troublesome. I'm not sure if it's an issue with passenger itself or if it's a ruby issue.

Here's my passenger config for nginx btw:

/etc/nginx/nginx.conf

   passenger_root /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/phusion_passenger/locations.ini;
   passenger_ruby /home/deploy/.rbenv/shims/ruby;

Here's my default virtual host for /etc/nginx/site-available/default

server {
        listen 80 default_server;
        listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;

        server_name prod.hcems.com;
        passenger_enabled on;
        rails_env    production;
        root         /home/deploy/exigencad/current/public;

        # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
        error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;
        location = /50x.html {
            root   html;
        }
}

Best Solution

It looks like the problem was with my .bashrc file.

I had the following at the bottom of the file:

if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ] && ! shopt -oq posix; then
    . /etc/bash_completion
fi
export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/bin:$PATH"
eval "$(rbenv init -)"
export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build/bin:$PATH"

Which was not setting my rbenv environment variable. Once I moved it to the top of .bashrc I could deploy without an error. And passenger now spins up the application.

My whenever gem doesn't seem to be working (setting my crontab for rake tasks), but I'll open another question regarding that.
