    when I try to install typhoeus with “gem install -user-install typhoeus” I always got this error:

    ERROR: While executing gem … (OptionParser::InvalidArgument)
    invalid argument: -ser-install

    I did a mistake obviously, can’t see where ….

    Thanks for this tutorial. One question. Has this setup been tested with the latest WP Scan that requires Ruby 1.9.1 ?

        It does. I installed RoR following . Then I used your tutorial, but I did not use sudo for the gem packages and installed only the ones I was missing. I did not need to install the -user-install typhoeus. The regular one did just fine.
