Step 1: install Passenger packages
These commands will install Passenger through Phusion's APT repository.
# Install our PGP key and add HTTPS support for APT sudo apt-get install -y gnupg sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 561F9B9CAC40B2F7 sudo apt-get install -y apt-transport-https ca-certificates # Add our APT repository sudo sh -c 'echo deb https://oss-binaries.phusionpassenger.com/apt/passenger xenial main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/passenger.list' sudo apt-get update # Install Passenger sudo apt-get install -y passenger
Step 2: check installation
After installation, please validate the install by running
sudo /usr/bin/passenger-config validate-install. For example:
$ sudo /usr/bin/passenger-config validate-install * Checking whether this Phusion Passenger install is in PATH... ✓ * Checking whether there are no other Phusion Passenger installations... ✓
All checks should pass. If any of the checks do not pass, please follow the suggestions on screen.
Step 3: update regularly
Passenger updates and system updates are delivered through the APT package manager regularly. You should run the following command regularly to keep them up to date:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade
After an update, you should restart all your Passenger instances so that the updates take effect.
