When Upgrading a Rails Application with a new Ruby Version Update Both of These

Today I struggled for a little bit while upgrading the Ruby version of my Rails 6.0 application.

First, I updated the Gemfile and solved a few errors which were caused by that. Unfortunately, I forgot to document these.

The final problem I was having was an inconvience. I change had to change my ruby version in my terminal each time I opened a new terminal tab like this:

rvm use 2.6.5

Setting this each time I changed directory was annoying. The way to ensure it’s set automatically was to change the Ruby version in the .env file.

If you can’t find it via terminal, type

ls -a

in the terminal when you have changed directory into your rails app.

Otherwise, you can find it in the file structure.
