    Uploading ROR to a Server

    Hey guys,

    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.

    Hey guys,

    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*
    - Ruby
    -RubyGems
    -Rails
    -SQLite or Mysql
    - mysql gem
    connecting to remote server: in command line type ssh someuser@someserver.com

    3. Webservers - Apache, Nginx, Lighttpd, -- Passenger/ Mod_rails, Mongrel, Thin, Unicorn.
    -Recommended Apache + Passenger .

    4. Deployment tools.
    - FTP software, Transmit (for Mac)
    or ExpanDrive (works for both Mac and Windows)

    - Source Code Manager
    -Git http://hit-scm.com and GitHub http://github.com
    - Deploy Scripting, Capistrano - http://capify.com


    Hope that helps a bit.
