Ruby on Rails Location

One important thing to consider when trying to use Ruby on Rails with GoDaddy shared hosting is the fact that their ruby installation is not in the standard location. As a result, you will have to modify the shebang line to point to the correct spot. The default line is #!/user/bin/ruby, but you need to change this to #!/usr/local/bin/ruby to get any Ruby program to work with GoDaddy. You can find this line in the file application_name/public/dispatch.fcgi or /public/dispatch.cgi. You may want to poke around the /public folder for other places you may need to change it in.
