Hi,

Last news is that in the future MSF will support only newest Ruby version, from 2.1.5. But even now we can use MSF with Ruby 2.1.5 to get better performances.

# Install rbenv

sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install -y gcc make build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev ruby-dev libssl-dev openssl libreadline-dev
git clone git://github.com/sstephenson/rbenv.git ~/.rbenv
echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile
echo 'eval "$(rbenv init -)"' >> ~/.bash_profile
git clone git://github.com/sstephenson/ruby-build.git ~/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build
source ~/.bash_profile

 
# Install ruby

rbenv install 2.1.5

# Then set system Ruby to use 2.1.5

rbenv shell 2.1.5

And you are ready to use MSF with last supported Ruby version.

If you have issue with gems you will need to install them:

sudo gem install bundle
sudo bundle install


P.S. You don't need to remove older version from system because they are used by tool like wpscan.

EDIT: Don't use this tutorial, read https://forum.backbox.org/announcements/backbox-switched-to-ruby2-1/msg8753/#new. Thank you.

Have fun!

Sorry i didn't remove this tutorial, we have updated BBox ruby to new version in last 24h, you will not need to use this tutorial anymore ;). Purge your system https://forum.backbox.org/announcements/backbox-switched-to-ruby2-1/msg8753/#new and install ruby from our repository.
