Select the Ruby version suitable for your application. After choosing, activate or assign it to your domain or application directory.


Configure your application settings to match the selected Ruby version. Adjust configurations within your application or via command-line tools provided by your hosting.

Verify that your Ruby application is running on the selected Ruby version. This might require restarting services or reloading configurations.


Encountering issues is common. Check your hosting provider's documentation or reach out to their support for specific guidelines or assistance.

Setting up Ruby Selector on shared hosting can be complex, but following these steps methodically will simplify the process, allowing you to launch your Ruby applications seamlessly.
