Proper rails deployment steps to DirectAdmin hosted server?

0 votes

With PHP applications, all I needed to do is to FTP all required files, create MySQL username/pass & upload SQL structure, add this username/pass in any given config file of the php script and the app worked. Can someone tell me what are standard/proper steps required to deploy an app that I worked on my local Ubuntu machine and want to have it working on 'standard' web hosting company that does not specialize in Rails app hosting?

I don't have anything written (which I should) but just googling around, here's a few:

There's also a pragprog book: which I haven't read.

If you hosting solution does not offer shell access, it's going to be very difficult, I think to do an effective deploy. Even moreso if your application requires gems that need to have native extensions compiled.

There are some great Rails-hosting PaaS out there: heroku, EngineYard, CloudFront, etc.

My most recent job, we used AWS to host our app, and deployed using Chef ( which was really nice to work with.

I've found Nitrous really nice for testing apps somewhere in the cloud:
They encourage you to deploy apps (as others suggest) to heroku.

I was trying to understand everything need to be known to deploy ROR manually. Does someone have some valuable article on that. I am using ROR 4 with ruby 2.1.x and webfaction as an host.

I would like to understand that before automating. It seams there is only one way to deploy right now, capistrano 2 or 3 if you can understand, and there is so little complete and up to date information on it. It is a nightmare for me right now.

I've plan to develop own Rails app based on very simple concepts like Student mark sheet, where we can do:

  1. Add a new marks(m1,m2,m3) of a student,
  2. Delete a existing marks of a student,
  3. Edit any existing mark(s) of a student,
  4. List of students mark in a view.

please give me steps/references to do that above,and it should query with sqlite.
