Installing Libraries Used by Ruby1:58 with Jay McGavren

In order to make our work publicly accessible, we're going to need a server with a "production" Rails environment. Let's get Ruby and Ruby on Rails installed on our server. There are several Linux libraries that need to be in place before we can install Ruby. So first we'll use your system's package manager to install those.
To follow along you'll need a Linux server or virtual machine. It should be set up with a deployment user that has full administrative access via the
If you have a hosting service such as Amazon Web Services, Rackspace, or DigitalOcean, you can just set up a server through your account there. If you don't, visit our Linux Servers on VirtualBox workshop to learn how to run a Linux server within your current operating system on your computer (for free!).
Installing System Libraries
Before you can install Ruby, you'll need to run these two commands on your server. (The
$ represents the prompt, so leave that out.)
