Description

This function starts a Ruby application.

Warning:

  • We deprecated the legacy Ruby codebase in cPanel & WHM version 66. For more information, read our cPanel Deprecation Plan documentation.
    • To install Ruby and create Ruby web applications in cPanel & WHM version 66 and later, follow the directions in our How to Create Ruby Web Applications documentation.
    • To register and manage Ruby applications that you create in WHM version 66 and later, use the functions in UAPI PassengerApps module functions.

Important:

In cPanel & WHM version 76 and later, when you disable the WebServer role, the system disables this function. For more information, read our How to Use Server Profiles documentation.

 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)


Warnings:

  • In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs. Examples are only present in order to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI.
  • cPanel API 2 calls that use cPanel tags vary in code syntax and in their output.
  • For more information, read our Deprecated cPanel Tag Usage documentation.
