Ruby at DreamHost

Overview

Ruby is installed on all DreamHost servers. As of Nov 2019, all Shared servers are running version 2.5.1. Other hosting plan types are running 1.9.3, but will soon be updated.

Ruby on Shared hosting

Due to the amount of memory Ruby on Rails may use, it's not recommended to run an app on Shared hosting. You will most likely be hit the Shared server's memory limits.

Installing a current version of Ruby

Running a Ruby app is only recommended on a VPS or Dedicated server. On those servers, you can install any version you like with Ruby Version Manager.
