Installing Ruby 2.7 on Ubuntu 22.04

Install openssl libraries

This describes the steps for the installation of the correct openSSL libraries - based on information from this forum.

Downloading the libraries

tar xf openssl-1.1.1n.tar.gz


cd in the directory openssl-1.1.1n

./config --prefix=/opt/openssl-1.1.1n --openssldir=/opt/openssl-1.1.1n shared zlib
make test
sudo make install
sudo rm -rf /opt/openssl-1.1.1n/certs
sudo ln -s /etc/ssl/certs /opt/openssl-1.1.1n

Install ruby using rvm

If you cd in the project folder:

rvm install $(cat .ruby-version) --with-openssl-dir=/opt/openssl-1.1.1n/

or if you want to install another version:

rvm install <ruby version> --with-openssl-dir=/opt/openssl-1.1.1n/
