Doh, it should work! What it the error you get?
You can also use any of the following 2 approaches:
1. Just put the command "/var/www/www.abc.com/start.sh" in a script and then use su to run it:
Code:
su - rails -c "/path/to/script"
2.
Code:
sudo -u rails /var/www/www.abc.com/start.sh

Let me try the above solution. I get back to you soon.

I assume the cd into /var/www/www.abc.com is missing.

Create the script:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
cd /var/www/www.abc.com 
./start.sh
Run it as the user rails:
Code:
su - rails -c "/path/to/script"
Try it from CLI first to see if it works, or it fails and for what reason

Run `bundle install` to install missing gems.
I executed the script with rails user.

Quote:
su - rails -c /home/rails/test.sh
Gemfile syntax error:
/var/www/www.abc.com/Gemfile:36: syntax error, unexpected ':', expecting $end
gem 'xcases', git: 'ssh://user1@git.gitserver.com/var/lib/git/xcases.git'
Please suggest

I'm not familiar with rails, but from the error above, looks like something is missing.
So as suggested, i.e. run "bundle install" and see what you get

Hi bathory,

I am running this script from rails user's home directory, If i run the script command in /var/www/www.abc.com directory it will work as all the bundle components are installed in /var/www/www.abc.com directory. so i must have to run ./start.sh script in the said directory. I cant installed bundle components in the rails user's home directory.

Regards,

This is what the script of post #22 does:
Changes directory to /var/www/www.abc.com
Runs the ./start.sh
Then you, as root use su or sudo to execute the script with the rails user rights
