Description

The bottom of http://doc.arvados.org/install/install-workbench-app.html tells the user to run the Rails console.

This needs to be done as the same user that will run Rails (www-data on Debian; nginx on Red Hat). Otherwise, Rails may create cache files with bad ownerships, causing errors when it tries to update those cache files later.

http://doc.arvados.org/install/install-arv-git-httpd.html already gives the user more complete instructions for running the Rails console. Follow its example everywhere we tell users to run the Rails console.

Aside from the irony of using macros to DRY up the documentation but not providing scripts to automate the actual steps, this looks good to me.
