Gotchas

  • Highline Version: If you are using JRuby 1.7 and receiving the exception NameError: cannot load Java class jline.ConsoleReader while running Capistrano commands then try running bundle update highline. This was fixed in Highline version to 1.6.14. See this issue for details.

  • SSH Agent Forwarding: If Capistrano hangs while deploying, check to see if the ssh_options[:forward_agent] = true is in the Capistrano config. This may not work as discussed here. Here are some solutions.

    • Authorize the server directly by generating an SSH key and setting it up as the deploy key.

    • Consider running Capistrano commands from Ruby MRI on your local.

    • Use an alternative deployment method such as "copy"

    • Try upgrading to JRuby 7 on your local machine, this has been reported to solve the issue but I have not tested it.

  • Not Reloading: I experienced an issue where running touch tmp/restart.txt on the server would not use the latest code. Unfortunately I was unable to reproduce this problem consistently enough to resolve it. If you experience this, please comment on this issue.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
