I'm trying to set up my VPS for the first time to deploy my rails app. I was trying to install rbenv, and encountered the following error.

deployer@max:~$ rbenv bootstrap-ubuntu-12-04
bash: /usr/bin/python: permission denied

I tried reinstalling python as well. What am I doing wrong?

Have you tried the command sudo rbenv bootstrap-ubuntu-12-04? –  Kevin Bowen Dec 3 '12 at 11:51
