Uploading ROR to a Server
Ive recently dived into the deep waters, and began to fast-track my learning of ROR and have achieved some pretty cool results...For example, I was able to create a basic version of Twitter.
My question to the Coding Forum elite is, how do I go about hosting my ROR app online? It may sound like a simple question but the thing that confuses most is....If I am running the ROR framework from my localhost server (on my pc), how do I instead transfer it and run it on paid hosting server? And which hosting services would you recommend to host Ruby On Rails web applications?
I look forward to reading your responses.
I've done some further research on the subject and thought I would share my findings with the forum.
Here are useful notes that I've taken from various sources on how to host/deploy your RoR applicationL
Hosting/Deploying RoR app
1. http://heroku.com *rails application hosting*
2. Install software on server *installation guides http://rubyonrails.org/download* *use google if needed*
-SQLite or Mysql
- mysql gem
connecting to remote server: in command line type ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Webservers - Apache, Nginx, Lighttpd, -- Passenger/ Mod_rails, Mongrel, Thin, Unicorn.
-Recommended Apache + Passenger .
4. Deployment tools.

or ExpanDrive (works for both Mac and Windows)

Hope that helps a bit.
