Rails deployment has been solved
Everyone knows that Rails deployment is a massive pain, right? Wrong. It’s time we all erased this outdated notion from our heads.
I just installed Redmine on my server, and it was simple. Thanks to mod_rails, the sum total of web server configuration needed was this:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName dev.redcaride.com DocumentRoot /home/dbl/redmine/public <Directory "/home/dbl/redmine/public"> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> </VirtualHost>
