    i would like to install VirtualX online exam management on Ubuntu server 14.04 and i am failing on Step 7: "apt-get install libruby1.8 libmysql-ruby1.8. libcurl4-gnutls-dev". its saying:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package libruby1.8
    E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libruby1.8'
    E: Unable to locate package libmysql-ruby1.8.

    Please add the below in the top of the file, /etc/apt/sources.list

    deb http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise main universe

    Then,

    apt-get update
    apt-get install libruby1.8 libmysql-ruby1.8 libcurl4-gnutls-dev

    Let me know if it worked fine!

    The error may get resolved if you proceed with an updated version of RVM installed. We cannot be that specific about the issue since you have not mentioned all of the steps you have followed to install the same.

    Anyway, We have updated the Software Deployment Guide in Source forge. Please flush out all of the Ruby and Rails dependencies, rvm etc. that you have installed and then install VirtualX from scratch following the updated Software Deployment Guide available in Sourceforge. Hope that will resolve your issue and if not, please revert to us with the issue details.

    Thank you very much for the updated deployment guide, its more detailed and friendly. i have successfully done steps 1 to 17 successfully, however, i am getting an error message when executing step 18: rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production:

    Rails Error: Unable to access log file. Please ensure that /var/www/VirtualX/log/production.log exists and is chmod 0666. The log level has been raised to WARN and the output directed to STDERR until the problem is fixed.

    i have done chmod 0666 as per error message but am still getting the same error.

    Your usual assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Please ensure that the file /var/www/VirtualX/log/production.log exists like as below

    ls -l /var/www/VirtualX/log/production.log

    If the file exist, please verify that the file have right permission, it looks as below,

    -rw-rw-rw- 1 pits pits 151113 Jun 20 17:05 /var/www/VirtualX/log/production.log

    If not,

    touch /var/www/VirtualX/log/production.log
    chmod 666 /var/www/VirtualX/log/production.log

    Also please change the ownership of the Virtualx directory to your current logged in user.

    chown -R username:username /var/www/VirtualX/

    If this doesn't work, we may require a detailed troubleshooting to find out the other possibilities.

    Anyway these are basic operating system based issues and it is out of our free support scope. If you need further assistance, you have to contact us for paid installation service.

    I tried all instructions for installation and have done so successfully but instead of seeing the app I see files and folders as attached pic .
    What I'm I doing wrong ?

    We suspect that the passenger module is not enabled. Please provide the output of the below command:

    sudo apachectl -t -D DUMP_MODULES
