    Hello, I'm writing this post for people looking for a tutorial to install slate to write api documentation.
    I'm very close to make it works and need help for the nginx config file

    0) Install Addon /ruby.sh (rvm.io ruby manager)
    1) Install Addon passenger.sh ( ruby,nodejs )
    and follow this tutorial to recompile nginx for passenger fusion & Enable /usr/local/nginx/conf/passenger.conf https://community.centminmod.com/th...ginx-module-for-python-ruby-deployments.3282/
    2) install bundler

    Then add vhost with centmin option4 and install slate

    ### slate install
    1) cd /usr/local/nginx/domain.com/public
    2) Clone your forked repository - git clone https://github.com/YOURUSERNAME/slate.git
    3) Install ruby gems for slate with bundle config set --local path '/home/nginx/domains/docs.getsms.one'
    (Doing "bundle install" on project folder would not works for me)

    ##Running slate
    1) in project domain.com/public do: bundle exec middleman build

    I need now to configure nginx to work with ruby.
    When i access the website i get NGINX 403 forbidden error.
    I found some nginx configuration for passenger like below, but i get nginx errors.

    server {
    passenger_enabled on;
    passenger_ruby /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-3.0.1/wrappers/ruby

    2) if i uncomment the passenger.conf, i also get nginx error

    #passenger_root /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-3.0.1/gems/passenger-6.0.14;
    #passenger_ruby /usr/local/rvm/bin/ruby;
    #passenger_max_pool_size 4;

    (use ruby folder location for passenger_ruby)

    I have never configured nginx with ruby and need some help. would appreciate some help

    Nginx 1.25.x
    MariaDB 10.x
    Not familiar with Slate or using Ruby on Nginx besides that initiate setup. Searching issues at Search · nginx · slatedocs/slate and maybe asking on their discussion forum Discussions · slatedocs/slate ?

    This one mentions 403 issues [Question] Running Slate on Nginx · Issue #641 · slatedocs/slate mentioning middleman build Using Slate Natively · slatedocs/slate Wiki

    FYI, addons/passenger.sh installs both passenger via ruby + nodejs dependencies so no need to run addons/ruby.sh or addons/nodejs.sh addons

    Thank you very much Eva, i followed this link [Question] Running Slate on Nginx · Issue #641 · slatedocs/slate
    and I succeed to make it works!

    in nginx file , it need to change root folder to correspond with the build file like this:

    root /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/public/build;

    and no need to add passenger_enabled on;
