RVM/Capistrano: rvm-shell not found

If you’re trying to deploy with Capistrano to a server you just set up, and it fails with an error like this:

Then you probably have a newer version of RVM on your new server than on your development machine.  Update RVM and go on your way.  Hope this saves someone some frustration!

Jim has been working with computers for as long as he can remember. He started programming when he was 12, and developed his first web application for hire when he was 16. Jim is as adept with hardware as he is with software. He's worked with countless languages on a variety of platforms, from gaming consoles to Android handsets to desktop applications, but his first and true love will always be the Web. For Jim, coding is more than a hobby or a job, it's his passion.

When he's not at his computer (which is rare), Jim's exploring Manhattan or enjoying a nice (gluten-free) meal with friends. He loves meeting new people, whether it be at home or when traveling the globe. Jim tries to learn something new everyday.
