WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi, I'm using my webfaction server not only to host some apps, but also as a remote development server I can access via SSH when I'm away (e.g. on holiday with a tablet and no laptop). I'm trying to set up a project I'm working on that is deployed on heroku, and I would need to install the heroku toolbelt so I can access the functions I need for debugging. I tried installing the toolbelt via their standalone script (wget -qO- https://toolbelt.heroku.com/install.sh | sh) but I need sudo access to make it work, which I don't have. I was wondering if anybody managed to do this or if anyone has any suggestions on how to proceed? Thanks

According to the Heroku Toolbelt site, the toolbelt is the Heroku client.

According to the Heroku client page on Github, you can install the Heroku client manually by downloading the tarball, extracting it, and adding its bin subdirectory to your PATH environment variable.

So, the following commands should do that for you:

cd ~
curl http://assets.heroku.com/heroku-client/heroku-client.tgz | tar zx
export PATH=$HOME/heroku-client/bin/:$PATH

Hope that helps!
