I'm attempting to set up a sinatra app and am running into the following error:

ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Errno::EACCES)
Permission denied - /home/:not_my_name

This is a pretty weird error as the not_my_name was the name of an old app folder on a completely different host. None of the folders in my app appear to be owned by anyone but me or root.

I have run the following commands as well:

export GEM_HOME=$PWD/gems
export PATH=$PWD/bin:$PATH

Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks

Try recursively searching for the string to find if it is in the configuration someplace,

grep --color=auto -n -R 'not_my_name' .

grep -r "name" returns nothing.

find /home | grep name

returns another permission denied. It seems almost like there is another account in the home directory somehow tied to mine?

Ok, please open a support ticket to let us see the actual error message, and we'll look into it further.
